We recently released the findings of the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) study conducted by Cybersecurity Insights. The study surveyed over 345 IT and Security executives and practitioners, with 45% of them small and mid-sized firms with 999 or fewer employees and the balance comprised of enterprise organizations with 1,000 or more employees. This study provides insights into the trends, key challenges and solution preferences regarding continuous monitoring and SIEM solutions.
Some of the Top Findings from the SIEM Study include:

Here are some practical recommendations to improve your network visibility, threat protection, and overall security operations.
Add Comprehensive Visibility to Protect Infrastructure, Assets, and Data
Over 30% of research respondents do not currently have SIEM security services that provide 24/7 visibility and correlation of actions with known threats. Many compliance mandates such as PCI DSS and best practice frameworks such as the SANS Top 20 recommend SIEM monitoring. While moving to a SIEM platform may seem daunting, our Zero to SOC paper outlines a practical and affordable way to achieve tailored protection that detects threats quickly without breaking the bank.
Revisit Your SIEM Performance and Organizational Fit
Onboarding a SIEM solution requires time, funding, expertise, and on-going tuning; it is not a “set it and forget it” type of application. Some short-staffed firms find that the departure of their log monitoring analyst results in the platform being shelved or abandoned by a lack of resources. If you have “shelfware” or find that your SIEM effectiveness is not where you’d like, it’s time to rethink your approach. Co-managed SIEM solutions like EventTracker’s offer end users the control and joint policy implementation required along with the outside expertise and threat intelligence they lack.
Enhance Your Security Maturity Beyond the Compliance Checkbox
Compliance is often the initial trigger that prompts organizations to invest in SIEM monitoring. While meeting compliance mandates is essential, additional SIEM solution benefits include the ability to uncover threats proactively and take action quickly. SIEMs such as EventTracker SIEMphonic incorporate advanced threat protection such as intrusion detection, threat intelligence, and user behavior analytics. A SIEM enables organizations of all sizes to understand their risks fully, prioritize actions and make better and faster security decisions. Take a strategic top-down view of risk management and use SIEM visibility and reporting to guide efforts such as insider threat assessment.
