Have you thought about security monitoring capabilities in your organization or in your development lifecycle? Are you planning to do research or invest in this area? Or are you already in an operating mode? Do you need information about how to evaluate outsourcing of such tasks? Are you wondering, why your solution does not perform as expected and cannot see a return on investment caused by increasing total cost of ownership?

 Our talk will examine the need of security monitoring capabilities, will focus on what kind of services a security operation center (SOC) can offer, and how it may deliver these effectively.

 In addition, we will outline common challenges and failings before and during the implementation phase on an illustrated example of a security information event management (SIEM) service monitoring a heterogenic application landscape.

 Last but not least, we will present recommendations for action but also well-known limitations, which are derived from insights during our actual security assessments measuring the maturity and capability of productive SOC’s.
