As more computational devices enter the corporate environment and generate audit trails, there is a need to mine the captured data. Many companies analyze these security events manually, in a painstakingly manner. The lack of manpower to sift through the staggering amount of information becomes too cumbersome for organizations to handle, maintain and look for anomalies. A few examples of different technologies that generate real-time security events are:

                      Unix, Linux, OSX system and syslog
                      Mainframe and AS/400
                      IDS / IPS events
                      Web-server logs
                      Online Application events
                      Firewall and Router Devices
                      Data Loss Protection (DLP)
                      Content monitoring solutions
                      Database events
                      Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam Solutions
                      Remote Network Authentication Solutions

A common approach in corporate IT departments is to analyze the different technology’ audit trails and security events individually and separately. The need to correlate these events has become apparent due to more sophisticated attacks spanning over different technologies. As an outcome of the need to understand security events, a Security Event Management (SEM) solution was developed as the next step of security event data mining. SEM solution takes captured information from different technologies, analyzes it and produces human readable output. It allows users to better analyze, correlate and mine security events generated by different technologies.

This service conforms to key components of many compliance regulations such as PCI-DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Canadian Securities Administrators' (CSA) MI 52-109 and ISO27002. Our SEM Service offers a high-value expert analysis provided by information security specialists.

RSS Inc. provides an outsourced SEM managed service for clients who do not have internal resources or expertise to operate the solution. Companies faced with this challenge turn to us for help in security events’ correlation and analysis.

Solution Benefits
The immediate benefit to an organization is to provide a broader insight of security events generated by different technologies. This information can be used by the organization to detect abnormalities or unauthorized occurrences. SEM solution plays an integral and crucial part of corporate Security Risk Management. It reduces risk by identifying problems quickly by traversing different technologies at once. SEM will provide mature automation controls in implementation of governance framework such as COBIT and ITIL.

The analysis of the detected abnormalities or unauthorized occurrences of targeted assets will be used to prioritize the response by utilizing solution’s trending and correlation ability with focus on the risks arising from security events by monitoring critical assets, internal compliance, reporting, monitoring and incident handling. SEM solution augments as a real-time forensic analysis tool. The outcome of the comprehensive analysis will be presented within different reports ensuring corporate compliance with industry, legislative, regulative standards and/or requirements.

The information contained within these reports will be analyzed and mitigation steps will be proposed to the client. The mitigation steps presented will address the immediate concern of the ongoing suspicious activities.

The RSS Inc. team will provide mid and long-term preventative steps in order to mitigate future incidents.
