Monthly Blog Round-Up – December 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. For my current security blogging, go here.

  1. On Free Log Management Tools” is a companion to the checklist below (updated version)
  2. Simple Log Review Checklist Released!” is often at the top; it is the case this month – the checklist is still a very useful tool for many people
  3. On Choosing SIEM” is about the least wrong way of choosing a SIEM tool – as well as why the right way is so unpopular.
  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. Top 10 Criteria for a SIEM?” is an EXAMPLE criteria list for choosing a SIEM.

In addition, I’d like to draw your attention to a few posts from my Gartner blog:

  1. On Vulnerability Prioritization and Scoring
  2. On LARGE Scale Vulnerability Management
  3. On Scanning “New” Environments
