The most important FAQ from the field of SIEM consulting

The digitization of all branches of business is advancing inexorably. However, the range of IT security threats is increasing at the same rate. A SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) provides crucial added value for your company’s information security: It enables you to comprehensively collect security-relevant data, consolidate it in a centralized repository and automatically detect anomalies and rule violations based on previously defined use cases. By using a SIEM system, your IT security team will be able to respond more quickly to cyber threats of all kinds. This is because the time required to identify an acute threat, the Meantime to Detect, can be significantly reduced. This is a decisive advantage, especially in the case of critical attacks on your IT infrastructure. In addition, with a SIEM you ensure the ability to analyze and preserve evidence, thereby ensuring compliance and legal requirements are met, among other things.

Important: Before deciding on a SIEM solution, it is essential to define which functions are really needed in the company.  

We have experience with all the leading SIEM vendors and have worked closely with many of them for years. 

Our selection of SIEM solutions includes: 

  • Microsoft Sentinel
  • Elastic
  • Splunk
  • IBM QRadar
  • MicroFocus Arcsight
  • Exabeam
  • LogRythm
  • LogPoint

More and more companies want to increase their security with a SIEM – but this becomes difficult or impossible, especially with small budgets or a lack of in-house IT security experts. SECUINFRA’s flexible, hybrid co-managed SIEM approach gives you the opportunity to implement your individual SIEM according to a modular principle. The modular structure allows you to decide individually about your own services and external support. If you lack resources, expertise or specialists for certain areas, these gaps can be filled with the help of our co-managed SIEM approach.

SIEM use cases have to be selected and adapted to the respective company in such a way that they can cover many threat scenarios with as little effort as possible. As a leading IT security service provider, we have our own use case library with more than 200 use cases – with more being added every month. Developed by our cyber defense experts, this ensures maximum effectiveness of use cases with high efficiency for our customers. We implement use cases that we have developed and tested many times based on the MITRE ATT&CK framework, instead of just activating use cases from SIEM vendors. As another unique selling point, we also develop the necessary specifications for log policies, test routines and runbooks. This keeps the use of monetary and time resources to a minimum.

With SECUINFRA’s flexible co-managed SIEM approach, any SIEM system as well as the required components can be installed and operated within the customer’s network. You as the customer provide the operating system platform on which our team of experts installs, configures and operates the SIEM system via remote access. Alternatively, it is also possible that you operate the platform independently and are only supported by individual components of SECUINFRA. With this hybrid offering, data protection is guaranteed at all times. Your data does not leave your company and access to it is exclusively from Germany.

In order for a SIEM to efficiently and effectively counter current and future cyber threats, different roles with different skills must be filled within the SIEM system. From monitoring log sources to developing SIEM content to incident response and threat hunting, the technology only works if all roles are perfectly staffed. This is exactly where we come in with our hybrid, modular and flexible co-managed SIEM approach: You decide individually which competencies you want to build up in-house and which services you want to purchase from us. In close cooperation, a first-class SIEM system is created – without hidden costs and dependencies. We guarantee that all SIEM components and data remain with you at all times. We provide all our services 24/7 with German-speaking experts. Not only our Co-Managed SIEM Service is ISO 27001 certified, but the entire SECUINFRA company.

Individual SIEM planning

We plan your optimal SIEM together with you – according to your individual requirements and expectations.

SIEM workshop

There are many points to consider when introducing a SIEM. Based on our experience since 2010 in the implementation and operation of SIEM, we offer a workshop. During the workshop all points regarding your SIEM will be discussed in detail. After the workshop you will have a clear picture of what to consider when implementing and operating your individual SIEM.

SIEM consulting

SIEM is much more than a product. The introduction should be very well planned to avoid false expectations and later cost explosions. Our experience of more than 28,000 SIEM consulting days in over 150 projects enables us to provide you with optimal advice in this area. In doing so, we address your requirements and expectations and support you in developing a concept that forms the basis for the introduction and operation of a SIEM.

SIEM concept

Before introduction, all points regarding SIEM should be clarified and recorded in a concept. Together with you, we create this concept. Here you bring your expectations of your SIEM and we complement these with our years of experience in the areas of SIEM consulting and operational support. The concept serves as a basis for the introduction and later operation of your SIEM and can also be used perfectly for a SIEM tender.

Comprehensive SIEM implementation

We work with you to holistically prepare the introduction of your SIEM to ensure smooth and efficient SIEM operations for your company right from the start.

Before buying an SIEM product, you should at least consider the following points: your SIEM objectives and overall conditions, SIEM use cases, event sources, audit log policies, EPS, GB/day, retention, SIEM roles, SIEM operating models, SIEM processes and works council involvement.

SECUINFRA is here to support you with all of these and other SIEM topics.

You bring with you your SIEM-related expectations and goals, to which we add our many years of experience in the fields of SIEM consulting and operational support.

Before introducing an SIEM solution, we clarify with you all points related to SIEM and set them out in an SIEM concept.

The SIEM concept is the basis for introducing and subsequently operating your SIEM solution. It’s also the perfect framework for an SIEM request for proposal.

Choose a SIEM product

In recent years, we’ve become familiar with the pros and cons of all of the leading SIEM products. We’ll gladly pass along what we’ve learned to you.

Determine the SIEM solution’s design

Based on the SIEM concept laid out during the planning phase, we design the ideal SIEM solution for you.

Implement a SIEM solution

Once the product has been selected and the design is complete, we implement the SIEM solution in your infrastructure.

Introduce additional detection tools

Standard event sources aren’t adequate for identifying all relevant events, which is why we recommend using additional tools. We help you choose and implement them.

Connect event sources

An SIEM without events is like a sailboat without wind. We integrate all the necessary event sources into your SIEM solution. If they aren’t supported as standard, we develop the necessary connectors.

Audit log policies

Only recognized, logged events can be evaluated by an SIEM solution. We help you define the ideal audit log policies.

SIEM use cases

SIEM use cases enable you to identify relevant incidents within the volumes of data in your SIEM solution. When creating SIEM use cases, we draw on many years of experience and an extensive database of SIEM use cases.

Create SIEM content packages

SIEM use cases enable detection of relevant incidents. Our SIEM content packages provide a manageable overview of them and prepare them for further processing.

Interfaces to other tools

An SIEM solution should be at the core of your cyber defense strategy and offer numerous interfaces to other tools, such as ITSM, asset databases and vulnerability scanners. We help you integrate the SIEM solution into your IT management infrastructure.

Introduce SIEM processes

Operating an SIEM solution requires a clear operating concept with coordinated processes. We help you implement the processes defined in the SIEM concept.

Introduce an SIEM operating concept

We help you implement the defined SIEM operating concept. On request, we can also manage individual operating roles for you.

SIEM training and knowledge transfer

SECUINFRA also supplements the implementation of your SIEM solution with extensive services that facilitate knowledge transfer. In addition to product training, our primary objective is to teach you how to use your SIEM solution for your specific tasks.

Modular and flexible SIEM operation

We support you with our co-managed SIEM approach exactly where you need additional competencies from our experts.

SIEM operations require different roles with different skills. With our hybrid, modular and flexible co-managed SIEM approach, you decide which skills you want to build in your organization and which services you buy from us. Together, we ensure a world-class SIEM operation.
