Monthly Blog Round-Up – May 2012

Here is my next monthly "Security Warrior" blog round-up of top 5 popular posts/topics this month:
  1. Log Management at $0 and 1hr/week?” is where a lot of companies still are, thus this post became popular again.
  2. Simple Log Review Checklist Released!” is often at the top – the checklist is still a very useful tool for many people. “On Free Log Management Tools” is a companion to the checklist (updated version)
  3. Why No Open Source SIEM, EVER?” (and this) is next – for some weird reason. I suspect a lot of people still crave a free open source SIEM tool.
  4. Top 10 Criteria for a SIEM?” came from one of my last projects I did when running my SIEM consulting firm.
  5. On Choosing SIEM” is about the least wrong way of choosing a SIEM tool – as well as why the right way is so unpopular.
In addition, I’d like to draw your attention to a few posts from my Gartner blog:

Denial of Service research:
