Security Information & Event Management
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a solution approach for the detection of IT security incidents. SIEM makes it possible to collect event log data from a wide variety of sources in a central location and to automatically detect and report anomalies and rule violations in this data based on previously defined use cases.
We want you to generate added value from your Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). Therefore SECUINFRA does not only sell you a product, but will support you fully in the area of SIEM.
SIEM is much more than a product.
SIEM combines components of Security Information Management (SIM) and Security Event Management (SEM). The latter includes the collection, normalization, aggregation and correlation of events as well as immediate notification when potential security incidents are detected. Through the SIM component, evaluations can be performed in real time using visualizations or downstream using reports on the collected data. These evaluations can provide valuable information, for example, about company-wide configuration changes, access to sensitive data, use of privileged accounts, or even an overview of the company’s current threat situation.

The most important FAQ from the SIEM area
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a solution approach for detecting IT security incidents. SIEM makes it possible to collect event log data from a wide variety of sources in a central location and to automatically detect and report anomalies and rule violations in this data based on previously defined use cases. The SIEM combines components of Security Information Management (SIM) and Security Event Management (SEM). The latter includes the collection, normalization, aggregation and correlation of events as well as immediate notification when potential security incidents are detected.

These evaluations can provide valuable information, for example, about company-wide configuration changes, access to sensitive data, use of privileged accounts, or even an overview of the company’s current threat situation.
The current threat situation in the area of cybercrime is more than tense. Whether it’s ransomware, phishing, drive-by downloads or social engineering, hackers are leaving no stone unturned to compromise networks, gain access to corporate data and extort ransoms.
Cyber security teams need to be able to respond quickly and efficiently to existing threat situations. SIEM systems deliver critical value to an organization’s information security by being able to comprehensively collect security-related data, aggregate it into a centralized repository, and automatically detect anomalies and rule violations based on pre-defined use cases.
This offers IT security teams a decisive advantage – because the time required to identify an acute threat (mean time to detect) can be significantly reduced by a SIEM.
A SIEM solution collects company-wide log data, usually with the help of software agents. The underlying sources include servers, endpoints, routers, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS and IPS), and applications. The collected data is compiled and processed in a central management station and correlated with each other. The correlated data is visualized on individually configurable dashboards. In this way, cyber defense analysts can identify IT security incidents at an early stage – in areas that conventional IT security solutions cannot take into account at all.
Overall, the following different operating models are possible:
In-house SIEM: You as the customer operate the system yourself, if necessary with the support of our SIEM expert team, which provides the missing know-how.
Managed SIEM: As your IT security service provider, we operate your SIEM system in one of our Cyber Defense Centers and process your data there.
Co-Managed SIEM: As your cyber defense partner, we operate the SIEM system or just parts of the system at your site. The data remains in your network at all times.
Our modern SIEM solutions, such as ArcSight, are also available as “Software as a Service” (SaaS) solutions, which significantly reduce the operating costs for you as the end customer. The integration of additional components such as ArcSight Intelligence (UEBA) or Cyberres Galaxy (Threat Intelligence) also offers you great added value in the area of IT security. Customers with special protection needs can also install a SIEM solution on premise.
Yes! With a SIEM, you ensure the ability to analyze and preserve evidence, ensuring compliance and regulatory requirements are met, among other things.
One of the ways you achieve this is by using a SIEM solution to automate your entire data collection and analysis process, and to capture and verify data compliance across your entire enterprise infrastructure. You’ll be able to generate real-time compliance reports that reduce your security management overhead. At the same time, a SIEM can identify existing vulnerabilities and potential breaches that need to be addressed.
We make your SIEM successful!
SIEM solutions ensure comprehensive monitoring of IT systems, networks and applications to detect and respond to threats. Security events are collected, correlated and analyzed in order to identify threats at an early stage and initiate appropriate countermeasures.
Planning, implementing, operating and optimizing a SIEM solution requires a deep understanding of the company’s technical and organizational requirements as well as its business processes. Careful planning, professional implementation and continuous improvement of the SIEM are essential to ensure an effective and efficient enterprise IT security strategy.
Planning a SIEM solution requires a careful analysis of the company’s business and security requirements as well as a detailed knowledge of the technical requirements and constraints. Sound planning lays the foundation for successful implementation and optimal performance of the SIEM solution.
Key aspects that should be considered when planning a SIEM solution include:
- Business and compliance requirements
- Data collection requirements
- Data storage requirements
- Integration of data sources
- Definition of alerts and notifications
- Planning of trainings for the responsible IT security team
Implementing a SIEM requires careful planning and preparation to ensure that the solution works effectively and efficiently. Among other things, it is important to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is in place to support the SIEM solution, including sufficient server capacity, network bandwidth and storage space. Furthermore, all necessary data sources must be properly configured and data must be properly captured. Clear and meaningful alerts and notifications must be configured to ensure that threats can be quickly detected and responded to.
The so-called use cases become particularly important when setting up a SIEM. They define different attack detection logics. Implemented in a SIEM solution, they help to detect actual attacks on the monitored IT infrastructure. The development of economical and effective use cases is a complex task for which in-depth expert knowledge is indispensable.
For the successful operation of a SIEM solution, it is essential, among other things, to monitor it continuously. Monitoring helps to identify and rectify problems at an early stage. Regular audits of the SIEM solution also help ensure that it meets the company’s current security requirements and is operating effectively. The audits can also help identify and fix vulnerabilities.
In addition, regularly updating software, monitoring system logs and performing regular backups are essential. The SIEM solution should also be continuously adapted to new threats (SIEM use case development).
Continuous optimization of the SIEM solution ensures, among other things, that it meets current security requirements and that alarms and notifications are configured correctly to avoid false alarms. Optimizing data sources can help improve the accuracy of the SIEM solution.
Successful optimization also requires close collaboration with other departments, as well as regular employee training and awareness.
