Improve Cyber Security with SIEM as Part of an Overall Security Solution

A CCH member, cyber security consultant and managed services provider (MSP) urges organizations to augment their cyber security with SIEM (Security Incident Event Monitoring) in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website. The informative article first asserts that SIEM allows organizations to detect and mitigate security threats early.
 
The author then explains how SIEM works by continuously collecting logs from devices and applications throughout an organization’s network. The system then analyzes the collected data, looking for patterns that may signal a breach. He concludes by claiming that SIEM also provides a tool for forensics investigators and plays an important role in demonstrating regulatory compliance.
 
“Cyber-attacks have become a fact of business life, with hackers often lurking in the network for months without detection,” stated Almi Dumi, CISO, eMazzanti Technologies. “Augmenting cyber security with SIEM can mean the difference between catastrophe and business as usual.”
 
Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Improve Cyber Security with SIEM as Part of an Overall Security Solution.”
 
“By collecting and analyzing log and event data from across the system in real time, SIEM (Security Incident Event Monitoring) allows organizations to detect and mitigate security threats early. Artificial intelligence and machine learning enhance the process, bringing SIEM far beyond mere log management.”
 
“In addition to managing threats, SIEM plays a key role in regulatory compliance. And when combined with preventative measures and threat response, it forms a critical component of a comprehensive cyber security strategy.”
 
How SIEM Works
 
“SIEM programs operate by continuously collecting logs from devices and applications throughout an organization’s entire network. This includes software applications, servers, cloud environments, firewalls, and other security devices. The program then normalizes the data, organizing it so that event logs from various systems can be examined together.”
 
“Next, the system analyzes the collected data, looking for patterns that may signal a breach. SIEM sorts events into categories that can include failed login attempts, malware activity and other potential problems and uses predefined policies to determine next steps. It then alerts security personnel of potential significant events.”
 
SIEM Essential to Security Strategy
 
With eMazzanti’s eCare SOC, organizations gain SIEM as part of a comprehensive SOC-as-a-service. The service includes real-time, automated monitoring of the entire network, with 24/7/365 support from human cyber security experts.
