What Is Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)?

Security Information and Event Management SIEM is the gold standard of modern detection, analytics, and response. SIEM software utilizes multiple data points as well as threat intelligence feeds. SIEM falls into two directions: Security Information Management (SIM) and Security Event Management (SEM). The first involves long-term storage, analysis and reporting of log data. The second concerns real-time monitoring of events, alerts etc. As a combination of SIM and SEM, SIEM represents a complex solution protecting enterprise data, providing real-time analysis of security alerts generated by network hardware and applications and early warning of any cybersecurity-related suspicious activity or misconduct.

What Is Security Information and Event Management (SIEM): How Does It Work?

The general principle of work starts from collecting event and log data from network hardware and applications and consolidating the results. Then comes the step for sorting the data and building categories. After that, every suspicious event or log data is identified and treated according to some set of rules. Based on the rules, the SIEM solution generates security alerts and reports to the enterprise IT team (in-house or MSSP).
