Detective controls on SIEM platforms are a critical component of countermeasure systems – your vanguard to identify malicious actors and actions.
They’re often modelled and deployed at speed against a point in time target identified by VM and TI systems. But as time goes on, the risk created by this approach increases.
Time constraints result in use cases that may only be useful for a single threat at a single time, with deployed controls that don’t meet best practice or deliver best results. These unknown control gaps create risk that can go unnoticed.
Effective risk mitigation depends on assessing both platform and implemented controls for maturity at the same time as you’re evaluating the threat landscape – and the use cases you’ve developed to address it.
