Recreating an Incident Timeline–a Manual vs. Automated Process, Part 1
For many years, SIEM technology has provided a centralized, queryable log repository for security analysts to access information[…]
During an incident investigation security analysts assess different indicators of compromise (IoCs) or the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) of an attack to determine the context in which an alert is firing. We look at how you can find critical information that will help gain a true understanding of the alert or incident.
A new study from Exabeam reports that the majority of organizations see significant value in red/blue team testing — and are using lessons learned from the exercises to strengthen their cybersecurity programs. The survey also found that 74% of respondents have seen their companies increase investment in security infrastructure as a result of red and blue team testing.
The context for security events is a key factor for investigation and remediation. This begins with understanding what is normal for each user or entity in the organization. Exabeam models user activity to build this baseline of normal and score risk based on anomalies – not artificial correlations.

A security incident is often a high-pressure situation. Having pre-planned incident response steps helps for an immediate and more organized response and can spare many unnecessary business impacts and associated reputational harm.
