Over time markets converge. We’ve been doing this for 20+ years and it happens over and over and over again. Security analytics/SIEM is no different as capabilities overlap to provide a broader security monitoring platform. In this Security Monitoring State of the Union paper, we delve into the use cases, how to ensure your SIEM and security analytics functions can co-exist (for a while anyway), and how to select your strategic platform.
We have long been fans of security awareness training. Employees remain the last line of defense, and in all too many cases, those defenses fail. There are many challenges facing security awareness programs, and over the past 5 years, we’ve seen modest improvement in some of those areas. But few organizations rave about their security awareness training, which means we still have work to do. In this paper, Making an Impact with Security Awareness Training, we will put the changes of the last few years into proper context, and lay out our thoughts on how security awareness training needs to evolve to provide sustainable risk reduction.
