“Windows event logs can be confusing, but they’re a key element of corporate security,” said Scott Whitsitt, Founder and CEO of One-to-One Service.com.
Champaign, IL (PRWEB) December 31, 2011
IT Compliance Experts has published a white paper focused on implementing Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) solutions. This white paper is based upon years of experience implementing event and system monitoring tools to streamline compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the HIPAA security rule.
The white paper, titled “SIEM – A Best Practices Approach”, focuses on the most effective way to evaluate security events, ways to assess the risk associated with those events, and best practices for managing the event-to-resolution process. The approach is based upon past implementations of leading event monitoring and help desk solutions, EventSentry and iService, at various public companies including Fortune 15 organizations.
The company performed an extensive analysis of the various Windows Events that can be used to monitor system activities, including key security and operational events. These events were evaluated for risk and impact on IT compliance, and mapped to the business processes that generate them. For example, when a new user account is provisioned on a corporate network a Windows event is generated documenting that business process.
“Windows event logs can be confusing, but they’re a key element of corporate security,” said Scott Whitsitt, Founder and CEO of One-to-One Service.com. “This analysis can help IT organizations of any size quickly deploy a solution for managing security incidents and events in a cost effective way.”
The white paper includes an excerpt from this detailed analysis that provides guidance on important Windows events and how to manage them. To learn more about this new report or obtain a copy, please visit the company's web site at http://www.ITComplianceExperts.com.
