What is SIEM?
Security Information and Event Management is a set of tools and services offering a holistic view of a business’s information security posture.
The tools include:
- Real-Time visibility across a business’s information security systems.
- Event log management consolidates its data from a range of sources.
- Intelligence applied to raw data gathering logos or security sources and applying if-then rules.
- Automatic security event notifications with dashboards and other methods of direct notification.
It works by combining Security Information Management (SIM) which collects data from log files for analysis and reports on threats and events and secondly security event management (SEM) which conducts real-time system monitoring, notifying network admins about important issues and establishing important correlations between security events.
The process can be broken down:
- Data Collection: from all sources of network security ie. servers, operating systems, firewalls, antivirus software and intrusion prevention systems.
- Policies: A profile is created to define the behaviour of systems both under normal conditions and during pre-defined security incidents.
- Data Consolidation and Correlation: Consolidation, parase and analysing of log files. Events are then categorised based on the correlation roles that combine individual events into meaningful security issues.
- Notifications: if an event occurs, the system will notify the security personnel.

Frequently asked questions about Cyber Security
How does it SIEM work?
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a comprehensive cybersecurity solution that plays a crucial role in protecting businesses against cyberattacks. it works by collecting and analyzing security-related data from various sources to detect and respond to potential threats.
Here’s how it works to safeguard your business:
- Data Collection:
- It gathers data from a wide range of sources, including network devices, servers, endpoints (computers, laptops, mobile devices), security tools (firewalls, antivirus software, intrusion detection systems), and applications.
- This data includes logs, event records, and other security-related information generated by these devices and systems.
- Data Normalization:
- The collected data is often in diverse formats and structures. SIEM normalizes this data by converting it into a common format, making it easier to analyze and correlate.
- Normalization includes standardizing timestamps, categorizing events, and assigning severity levels.
- Data Aggregation and Correlation:
- Systems aggregate and correlate data to identify patterns, anomalies, and potential security incidents.
- They use predefined rules, heuristics, and machine learning algorithms to detect suspicious activities and known attack patterns.
- By correlating data from multiple sources, SIEM can provide a more comprehensive view of the security landscape, helping to distinguish between normal and potentially malicious activities.
- Alert Generation:
- When it detects an event or activity that matches predefined criteria indicating a security threat, it generates alerts.
- These alerts are typically categorized by severity levels to prioritize responses.
- Incident Response:
- SIEM assists in incident response by providing real-time notifications and detailed information about detected threats.
- Security teams can investigate the alerts to determine the scope and impact of the incident.
- SIEM also helps in documenting incidents, which is crucial for compliance and legal purposes.
- Threat Hunting:
- It can be used for proactive threat hunting, where security analysts actively search for hidden or advanced threats within the network.
- By using advanced analytics and threat intelligence, it helps identify previously unknown threats.
- Reporting and Compliance:
- Generates reports and dashboards that provide insights into the security posture of the organization.
- These reports can be used for compliance audits, risk assessments, and making informed security decisions.
- Integration with Security Tools:
- It often integrates with other security tools such as intrusion prevention systems (IPS), antivirus solutions, and endpoint detection and response (EDR) platforms.
- This integration allows for automated responses to detected threats, such as isolating compromised endpoints or blocking malicious IP addresses.
- Continuous Improvement:
- Solutions continually learn and adapt to new threats and attack techniques by leveraging machine learning and threat intelligence feeds.
- This ensures that the security posture of the organization remains up to date and effective against evolving threats.
In summary, it works as a centralized hub for collecting, normalizing, analyzing, and correlating security data to provide organizations with comprehensive visibility into their cybersecurity landscape. By detecting threats in real-time, generating alerts, and supporting incident response efforts, SIEM helps businesses proactively defend against cyberattacks and minimize the potential impact of security breaches.
What is a 'cyber event'?
Simply put, an ‘event’ is something that happens. It’s a change in the way that processes are working as normal. Here are some examples of events:
- An email sent from one party to another
- A login attempt
- Software is downloaded to a device
- Servers are shut down briefly
If an event falls outside the prescribed rules of your SIEM system, it becomes and ‘incident’. Incidents have the potential to be benign, or become ‘threats’ to your organisation, which may result in a breach.
How does Security Information and Event Management work?
SIEM has the ability to distinguish between what is a threat and what is simply a natural event in the course of day to day business.
For instance, a user struggling to remember their credentials, may attempt to log in to their email account upwards of 20 times over the course of an hour. The security team would ordinarily categorise an event of this nature as being of low priority.
However, the next day, the software discovers that the same account has had over 200 unsuccessful login attempts in a short period of time. According to the rules of the system, this is identified as a brute force attack.
The security team is alerted, and the threat receives a swift response.
What are the limitations?
SIEM is not a complete cyber security solution. There are several limitations of the software that businesses need to be aware of:
- Blind spots. they have difficulty responding to threats from unstructured data and in personal emails.
- Distinguishing. Without proper adjustment, it cannot distinguish between safe and unsafe data.
- Flexibility. Without a complete cyber security solution, services can be relatively inflexible.
As stated above, SIEM is only part of a comprehensive cyber security solution. If you are ready to take charge of your business’ cyber security efforts, then contact Kaine Mathrick Tech.
