Audit Trail

An audit trail, also known as an audit log, is a chronological record that contains documentation of the activities that have taken place within a given electronic system or an organization's framework. These activities may include transactions, changes in data, or any other operation affecting the system, such as changes in inventory levels, order creations, or updates of customer information.

  • Security: Aids in identifying and preventing unauthorized access or alterations in the system, thus improving data security.
