SIEM (Security Indication Event Management)

SIEM (Security Indication Event Management)

This is a system for aggregating security-related log files from devices across your network to help detect suspicious activity. SIEMs can be effective at detecting technical breaches, but are not always effective at detecting social engineering-based attacks because many of the actions in these attacks are performed by the user themselves, which is not always flagged. A SIEM is important In the context of GDPR because it can indicate to the organisation which data systems were compromised after a technical-based attack takes place.
