At Conosco, our ISO 27001 and Cyber Essential certified security experts will implement the right SIEM solution for your business and continuously monitor and manage your IT infrastructure to ensure outstanding cyber hygiene
What is SIEM?
Security information and event management (SIEM) software offers an important line of defence for your data. It allows for easy visibility into and monitoring of an IT ecosystem to keep information safe and mitigate cyber threats.
SIEM combines security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM) for a holistic approach to keeping data safe. As well as recording activity logs and analysing IT events, SIEM software can also provide real-time threat analysis and automated incident response management.

What is SIEM and how does it work?
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technology is an organisation’s first line of defence. It helps organisations identify and respond to security incidents by providing visibility and monitoring of the IT environment and services and alerting the IT or Security team if a threat occurs. SIEM software is implemented as part of an organisation’s IT network, either locally or in the cloud. Events and logs from devices across the IT infrastructure, such as host systems and firewalls, as well as cloud services such as Office 365 are fed into the SIEM, which collects and analyses the data.
The software then uses machine learning to compare the incoming data to existing patterns and known threats to detect suspicious activity. Conosco’s Security Analysts monitoring the SIEM are then able to investigate these alerts, determine whether there is a threat, and take steps to prevent malicious activity.
What are the main challenges of SIEM?
SIEM solutions produce a huge volume of alerts each day. It takes time (that you may not have in the event of a security breach) for your employees to go through each of them and decipher which ones are genuine. With a managed SIEM solution, Conosco’s SOC experts will continuously monitor and analyse the alerts, and only communicate to you those which require action. By working alongside our team, it will take the burden off your internal resources freeing you up for other projects.
What SIEM solution should I choose?
There are many SIEM solutions available, that’s why having the right partner to advise you and implement a solution that integrates with your current systems is essential.
We understand that IT budgeting is important, but instead of focusing solely on price think carefully about buying a SIEM solution that integrates with your existing data sources to ensure you get the maximum threat coverage and visibility needed.
How much does SIEM cost?
There is a range of different SIEM software solutions on the market. The price of a SIEM solution depends on factors such as employee numbers, storage requirements and volume of log evens.
How does SIEM support compliance?
GDPR, PCI and DSS are all regulatory standards that require organisations to proactively monitor the security of their infrastructure and data. Managed SIEM solutions allow you to do just that, and with Compliance Reporting features it also helps you to measure and improve your security posture.
