SIEM and Compliance
Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) system and compliance standards are closely linked to ensure that companies implement the best cybersecurity practices. In essence, the regulatory compliance schemes do not demand the SIEM tools to gain compliance and pass certification audits. However, SIEM is critical to handle compliance for its ability to aggregate, correlate and analyze logs data from multiple sources.
Then, how can SIEM help companies to meet compliance standards requirements?
UTMStack SIEM for compliance management
UTMStack is a Next-Gen SIEM platform that includes threat detection and response, compliance management, log management, vulnerability management, network/host IDS/IPS, Asset Discovery, Endpoint Protection, Identity Management, Incident Response, File Classification, Dark Web Monitoring, and threat Intelligence. This cybersecurity and compliance SIEM is designed for hybrid environments where businesses can deploy it across on-premises and cloud providers.
The platform also includes a powerful dashboard and report builder that can be used to personalize the monitoring experience or for advanced compliance auditing and reporting. By default, UTMStack manages the following compliance standards. However, organizations can create new compliance standards according to their need:
6. SOC 2
SOC 2 Reports include:
- Gap Assessments – assess the controls in place to meet the Trust Services Principles and Criteria to ensure preparedness for the SOC 2 examination and help mitigate the risk of a qualified opinion or reporting exceptions.
- SOC 2 Type 1 – Report on the service organization’s operational controls pertaining to the suitability of the design of controls intended to meet the selected Trust Services Principles and Criteria as of a point in time.
- SOC 2 Type 2 – Report on the service organization’s operational controls pertaining to the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls intended to meet the selected Trust Services Principles and Criteria over a specific time range.
7. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
PCI DSS sets out security standards to establish a secure environment for businesses that accept, process, store, or transmit payment card information. UTMStack helps with PCI DSS standard by:
- Helping protect networks on which payment card information is stored or processed.
- Tracking and monitoring all access to network resources and cardholder data.
- Encrypting cardholder data and sensitive information transmitted over open public networks.
- Comprising the threat detection aspects of the PCI DSS standard.
Without any doubt, SIEM and compliance are the backbones of any business cybersecurity strategy. A proper and reliable SIEM is necessary for any business that wants to keep up with compliance audits. As IT environments and threats grow more complex, SIEMs will be even more beneficial to facilitate cybersecurity management and compliance.
