In information warfare, the need to develop SIEM architecture has become a crucial factor due to the existence of ever-growing cyber threats and their creators – cyber pests.
Cyber space is continuously evolving and so are the attack techniques employed by the attackers to harm a business, whether financial or reputational. With the increased malicious activities on the internet, cyber security is not a 9-to-5 job anymore. It requires continuous security monitoring of your organization’s technical infrastructure so that even if a security incident occurs, it is contained immediately and mitigated without causing large-scale damage to the organization.
If an organization properly implements a SIEM solution, it efficiently draws attention towards warning signs as well as suspicious activity within the network. With the ever-evolving cyber space, continuous security monitoring has become exceedingly important. The benefits of SIEM also extend to understanding business and technology environments, monitoring availability and performance, issue diagnosis, and creation of a report on network activities.
Vulnerability management is a proactive approach that mitigates or prevents the exploitation of IT vulnerabilities that may exist in corporate critical systems or network. This approach involves a number of steps that include identification, classification, remediation, and mitigation of numerous vulnerabilities.
As per Gartner definition, SOAR is the set of technologies that allow enterprises to collect security threats’ alerts and data from multiple sources, and then perform incident analysis and remediation process by using both human skills and machine power together to help in defining, prioritizing, and driving standardized incident response activities in accordance with a standard workflow. The SOAR tools enable companies to describe incident analysis and response procedures, also known as “Plays” in a Security Operations Playbook, in a digital workflow format.
