Standards for preventing network intrusion

British Standards contain the combined knowledge of experienced UK subject experts often working together with their international colleagues in an open,  consensus-based process.

You can read a description of these standards and some other relevant publications that are available from BSI or other organizations below:

BIP 0136:2013. Security Information and Event Management: A Practical Guide

 

Security information and event management (SIEM) is an approach to security management that seeks to provide a holistic view of an organization’s cyber security. SIEM combines SIM (security information management) and SEM (security event management) functions into one security management system.

This book is designed to demystify the topic and offers clear unbiased information allowing the reader to make an educated decision on which SIEM approach may be adequate for their organization. The objective is to help companies respond to attacks faster and organize mountains of log data. SIEM solutions come as software, appliances or managed services
