Logs are the source of truth. If a company is sufficiently instrumented, the logging data that streams off of the internal infrastructure can be refined to tell a comprehensive story for what is changing across that infrastructure in real time. This includes logins, permissions changes, other events that could signal a potential security compromise.

Datadog is a company that was built around log management, metrics storage, and distributed tracing. More recently, they have also built tools for monitoring the security of an organization. Detecting security threats can be achieved by alerting on known security risks, or pieces of information that could be indicative of a vulnerability.

Marc Tremsal works at Datadog, and joins the show to talk through security monitoring. Full disclosure: Datadog is a sponsor of Software Engineering Daily.
