I need to keep a log for any changes made to user permissions. Is there a way to do it in SharePoint 2010?

Yes, the audit logging keeps track of it.

You will have to enable auditing in SharePoint that will show you all the critical changes made in SharePoint.

You can look into this advanced SharePoint auditing utility(http://www.lepide.com/sharepoint-audit/) that would be a perfect approach in your environment. This will let you track every changes occurred in SharePoint server and monitor all the suspicious activities with real-time alerts.
