Security Alerts: Stop the Noise
Security Alerts: #StopTheNoise
Security information and event management (SIEM) alerts are supposed to alert businesses to dangerous advanced attacks. But, according to research provided by Ponemon Institute, organizations waste an average of $1.27 million every year responding to the noise of false alerts.
Of the 17,000 malware alerts an organization receives each week, only 3,230 are considered reliable, and only 680 of the alerts are actually investigated.
Most cyber security solutions don’t distinguish between everyday malware and advanced targeted attacks. Important alerts get lost in the noise of unimportant alerts, allowing attacks to breach network security.
Get best practices to better manage security alerts:
- Reduce false positives and consolidates related events
- Verify, analyze, and provide context for alerts
- Align security to business risks
- Prioritize and highlight alerts that matter
