Why Active Security Monitoring Is Essential to IT Security

Federal regulations require that IT departments collect logs and event data as part of their information security protocol. Unfortunately, a surprising number of organizations don’t have the expertise or the manpower to analyze this data. Recording logs and events is useless if no one is looking at and analyzing them!

 A False Sense of Security

With no one paying attention to these logs, malicious activity could be happening right under your nose. To make matters worse, recording this data could give your organization a false sense of security. After all, you figure that at least you’re doing something. Recording logs is an important federal regulation, but without someone watching and analyzing the data, it does nothing to protect you.
