How to Implement SIEM?

  • To start with, understand the scope of the implementation of SIEM in your organization. Define the benefits associated with the implementation in the context of your business.
  • You need to then apply and define all the data correlation rules across all the networks and systems in your IT infrastructure.
  • Next, revise and check all the data compliance standards of your firm. Make sure that the SIEM system you choose adheres to the compliance standards and alerts you when those standards are not followed.
  • Also, classify all the digital assets present in your organization. This will help the SIEM to aggregate and log data from all the devices in the infrastructure.
  • Create different policies including IT configurations, and bring your device policies and limitations that need to be monitored while integrating SIEM.
  • After implementing SIEM, you need to tune it regularly. This will help you to reduce false positives in your alerts.
  • You will also need to document all incident response workflows and plans. This requires making sure that your team responds to security incidents quickly.
  • Try to automate the process wherever it is possible. Use SOAR capabilities and artificial intelligence to automate the process.
  • Lastly, you will have to analyze the possibility of investing in the Managed security service provider to feasibly manage the deployment. It is a better option to choose MSSP to manage the regular functionality of your SIEM System as per the requirements of your company.
