        #Creating a value that will be used to write to the Syslog file. Rows added to applicable CEF fields.
        syslog_message = "CEF:0|" + row[0] + "|" + row[1] + "|1.0|1000|ThreatIntelFeed|10|src=" + row[2]

        #Writing the event to the Syslog file.
        syslog.syslog(syslog.LOG_NOTICE, syslog_message)
