Ahh, finally a topic near and dear to my heart, Security Event Management (SEM). Well, at least it's near and dear to my paycheck. The whitepaper (PDF) is released by Three Sixty Information Security, a security consulting firm based in London. It covers what is SEM, and how to prepare for it. Since most the work I do right now is post sales, I usually miss the opportunity to promote this level of planning. So to all the future customers of TSOM: read this paper and give some good though to planning. More often than not, the database that is created by TSOM (and any SEM for that matter) is one of the largest databases a company will manage. But planning for a large database is only part of the story. And I thank Three Sixty Information Security for putting together a decent whitepaper helping future customers.
