What to Log

I'm not sure if you all know about the existence of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) - they are the 'user friendly' wing of GCHQ and publish lots of good articles about cyber security. I had the pleasure of working with their support on a piece of "Critical National Infrastructure" some years back and found their ideas practical and helpful - although TBH it was the first and only time I've had meetings with an engineer who had their own minder, who sat alongside, didn't say anything and just took lots of notes!

Anyway, I recently came across a very interesting article from them and I wanted an excuse to reference it here and discuss some of the issues they raise.
