Webcast: Transforming SIEM - Gain Actionable Intelligence for Securing Information Assets

July 31, 2013 - 1 pm ET / 10 am PT

Business executives demand data for decision-making. Security professionals want situational awareness. Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools are seen as a solution to fulfill both needs, but today’s reality is that such tools often create more fog than clarity, doing little more than providing compliance reporting.


In this webcast, our guest, John Kindervag, Principal Analyst, Security and Risk Management at Forrester Research, will describe a data security and control framework for collecting and analyzing new types of IT data to transform SIEM into a security and IT analytics tool. Through this transformation, SIEM can provide the INTEL (information, notification, threats, evaluation, leadership) organizations require to better secure data, including:

  • Recommended actions to help grow your ‘INTEL’
  • Analytics to better predict threats and protect data
  • New types of IT data needed and the associated challenges

The session will conclude with an interactive discussion of SIEM’s role in this process, steps to take and obstacles to avoid to be successful.
