August 2019 – Log Aggregation vs SIEM


Logs. We’ve talked about them in several presentations. “Maintenance, Monitoring, and Analysis of audit logs” is one of the basic CIS security controls. Security administrators have many choices in tools that handle logs, but do you really understand the purpose, function, and use case for each? What makes a “log aggregation” tool and a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool different? When would you use one over the other?

Join us at Sycom Technologies on Thursday, August 8th, as Jared Register answers these questions. We’ll compare and contrast log aggregation and SIEM tools to understand their function in our security plan. With this knowledge in hand we’ll be better prepared to implement the correct tools in our network for more efficient analysis and reporting.
