Security Alerts — How to tell Which are Important.


Alert fatigue is becoming a universal problem, and it’s mainly due to a reactionary cybersecurity marketplace where security operations teams are challenged with transforming their approaches to keep pace with the innovations that are being applied to continuously evolving business models. Traditional, non-integrated SOCs are not designed to address the dynamic nature of today’s businesses, the accelerating volume of alerts per hour, or the thousands of raw events per second coming from monitoring and detection products. Solving these operational concerns requires a shift in thinking that focuses on the root cause problem rather than reacting to the symptoms. Adding more tools can actually add more complexity and gaps, increasing risk. It is always important to make sure every tool is implemented and utilized correctly.
