Frequently asked questions
What are Windows event logs?
Windows event logs are files that record all the activities taking place on a Microsoft system. In a Windows environment, events are logged for systems, security, and the applications hosted on the system. Event logs provide context with detailed information on the events, including the date, time, event IDs, source, event type, and the user who initiated it.
How does monitoring security logs help in mitigating cyberattacks?
Security event logs contain records of all the security-related events specified by the system's audit policy. This may include login and logoff attempts, modification of privileged information, and more. Windows uses event IDs to define the type of event. You should monitor the following event IDs for security-related incidents:
- 4740: Locked user account
- 4625: Failed account logons
- 4719: Changed system audit policy
- 1102: Cleared audit logs
- 4728, 4732, 4756: Added member to security global, local, and universal group
- 4777: Failed validation of account credentials by domain controller
- 4663: Attempt to access object
By monitoring Windows security logs at a granular level, you can spot anomalies, suspicious activities, and data breaches at the earliest stages to avoid full-blown cyberattacks.
