What is SIEM and why is it important?

If data was compromised at your organization, how would you determine the cause? 

Implementing logging mechanisms at your organization gives you the ability to track user activities, which is crucial in preventing, detecting, and minimizing the consequences of a data breach. Without logging and tracking, it’s almost impossible to find the source of the data breach or compromise. That’s where SIEM comes in satisfying PCI Requirement 10 focusing on a critical aspect of data protection: logging and tracking. 

SIEM (pronounced like “SIM”) stands for Security Information and Event Management. SIEM provides a real-time analysis of security through a combination of security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM). Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) generates real-time security alerts by applications and network hardware.
