Security information and event management (SIEM) can significantly enhance the organizations ability to detect, isolate and respond to security incident in an efficient and effective manner. It allows organization to correlate information, understand the threats and develop long and short term strategies for mitigation. Additionally a skilled incident response team established to meet specific organizational information security challenges can be a vital component of an organization’s defense.
SIEM combines SIM (security information management) and SEM (security event management) functions into one security management system. It enables organizations to centrally collect and correlate data from across the organizations security endpoints and produces a single comprehensive view of security events to spot trends and identify patterns or anomalies. This centralization of security events information allows near real-time analysis and enables security personnel to develop response and deploy counter measures quickly to prevent unauthorized access or data breaches.
While compliance requirements maybe one of the many factors driving the adoption of SIEM across the industries, implementing a SIEM is a strategic business decision for any business, no matter how small or large. Many SIEM solutions will provide some excellent functionality right out of the box. However, this functionality only provides knowledge of globally accepted and known exploits.
