It’s not the known security threats that defeat your DEFENSES!

The high extend of security incidents and breaches seen today is so high and so widespread that to be complacent is to invite a future undesirable breach outcome. Prudence would follow that organisations should work on the principle that it is probable that breaches are a likelihood.

OAIC mandatory data breach notification, reveals in Jan-March 2019 alone, 215 notifications: 35% human error, 61% malicious or criminial attacks, 4% system faults.


If an incident results in a breach where data is potentially exposed or actually disclosed to an unauthorised party—especially if it is personally identifiable information related to persons such as employees or customers—the consequences can be serious.



The informed perspective all industry experts share is that it’s almost a given that every organisation will, at some point, be breached. An organisation’s ability to detect & respond in a timely and efficient manner is critical to containing the incident, and can make the difference between a security incident causing only minor damage and a situation that results in a major incident.  Time to detect and respond is a cost multiplier!  However, many organisations currently lack the ability to detect breaches in a timely manner, with more than a third of breaches taking months or even years to discover. According to Ponemon, the median time taken for organisations to detect that threat groups are present on their network is 229 days— just a few days shy of eight months!

How long malicious breaches take to discover?

Security intelligence tools have evolved from security information and event management (SIEM) and log management systems. The term SIEM was coined roughly a decade ago and refers to technology that provides threat detection capabilities in real time and forensic analysis of all events occurring from the alerts and logs generated by devices connected to the network and applications that run on it.

SIEM systems provide the ability to capture all network events and to correlate and analyse all information to uncover abnormal system behaviour that is indicative of security risks, threats or incidents, turning event data into actionable threat intelligence.

 Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) plays a critical role in analysing and identifying security incidents and data breaches in real time. Next-Gen SIEM performs broad-based collection of ALL key log sources, and identifies threats in near real time with correlation across ALL relevant systems activity to provide an immediate and holistic view into an organisation’s security threats in play.
