SIEM. What is security information and event management (SIEM)- as a service?
Security information and event management (SIEM) is an approach to cybersecurity management that provides an all-inclusive view of a company’s network security. The acronym SIEM is pronounced “sim” with a silent e.
A SIEM system acts as a single aggregation point and log management tool for various devices in your IT environment. The information is gathered, correlated and analyzed by an individual or team to help determine if a security event is taking place. SIEM’S are important because they can help determine if allowed and authorized behavior is actually malicious in nature. An example of this might be, Jim in accounting is authorized to view financial information and Jim is authorized to log into the network remotely because often times he works from home on Mondays and Fridays however if Jim is logged in remotely and at work at the same time then that might be something worth investigating because Jim obviously cant be in two places at one time.
Even though most organizations see the value of a SIEM solution many of them don’t move forward with a SIEM because they are expensive to purchase, manage and difficult to properly tune. In order to fully recognize the benefits of a SIEM an organization must provide human resources dedicated to the management of the SIEM or the logs and alerts will go unnoticed and the cyber attack will continue to occur under the radar.
