Avoid excessive logging

Summary​

The system must not register unnecessary information when logging exceptional events.

Description​

While event logging is generally a good security practice, the organization must consider that using high logging levels is only appropriate for development environments, since having too much log information in production stages may hinder the performance of a system administrator in detecting abnormal conditions. This may imply that both the attacker and the attack be able to remain hidden while trying to penetrate the system, the audit trail in a forensic analysis be reduced, or the debugging of issues in production environments be hindered.
