Synopses & Reviews
Implement SIEM to efficiently analyze and report data, respond to inside and outside threats, and follow compliance regulations
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Implementation shows how to take advantage of SIEM technology for real-time analysis of security alerts generated by network hardware and applications. The book explains how to implement multiple SIEM products from different vendors, and also discusses the strengths, weaknesses, and advanced tuning of these various systems.
This comprehensive guide covers everything from basic concepts and components to high-level configuration, risk and threat analysis, interpretation, and response. The separate pieces that make up a complete SIEM system are outlined, and techniques for deploying an integrated collection of discrete SIEM pieces to meet your requirements are presented.
