Monthly Blog Round-Up – August 2011

Here is my next monthly "Security Warrior" blog round-up of top 5 popular posts/topics this month.

Disclaimer: all this content was written before I joined Gartner on Aug 1, 2011 and is solely my personal view at the time of writing.

  1. The Last Blog Post!” is obviously BY FAR the most popular post in August. It announces my departure from consulting business in order to join Gartner as a Research Director with SRMS team.
  2. Top 10 Criteria for a SIEM?” is an EXAMPLE criteria list for choosing a SIEM.  Also see “On Choosing SIEM” which is about the least wrong way of choosing a SIEM tool – as well as why the right way is so unpopular.
  3. On SIEM Services” is a quick overview of services that you really should be getting with that SIEM purchase
  4. Log Management at $0 and 1hr/week?” is pretty much what it is. How to do log management under extreme budget AND time constraints?
  5. A very old post (2009), “Log Management + SIEM = ?", is about architecting SIEM together with log management.

Also see my past annual “Top Posts” - 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010).
