AU-5(5): Alternate Audit Logging Capability


(Not part of any baseline)

Info icon.

Control is new to this version of the control set and incorporates the following item from the previous version: AU-15: Alternate Audit Capability.

Control Statement

Provide an alternate audit logging capability in the event of a failure in primary audit logging capability that implements [Assignment: organization-defined alternate audit logging functionality].

Supplemental Guidance

Since an alternate audit logging capability may be a short-term protection solution employed until the failure in the primary audit logging capability is corrected, organizations may determine that the alternate audit logging capability need only provide a subset of the primary audit logging functionality that is impacted by the failure.
