Record exceptional events in logs

Summary

The system must register all exceptional and security events in logs.

Description

The organization must properly record the exceptional and security events in duly protected logs (confidentiality), considering that an event of this type should not show confidential or detailed information of the problem in error messages to prevent the use of that information by an attacker or malicious user. Recorded events allow error pages to display simple generic messages, alerting end users that an error has occurred, with some option to contact support. The details of how to address these problems should be kept securely stored in a previously defined log storage. When an event of this type is not properly recorded, a malicious behavior can be proven difficult to detect or a forensic analysis can be obstructed in case an attack is successful.
