A SIEM, or security information and event management, device is only as good as the people who run it. When it comes to SIEM recruitment you need to hire people who can get the most out of your investment. 

It is estimated that 5.1 million cyber-attacks occurred over the past year, with a further 2.5 million offences reported under the Computer Misuse Act. More than half of these victims suffered a financial loss. 

With information theft and cybercrime becoming an ever greater business threat, companies need to make sure their cyber security perimeter is robust and fit for purpose. 

A key component of any security operations centre (SOC), the SIEM analyses logs and flags events that need to be investigated A well calibrated and finely tuned SIEM will discern real threats from false positives. 

However, for a SIEM device to be effective it has to be expertly tuned. SIEM engineers and analysts need to collect your company’s web traffic and logs, make sense of what is happening and calibrate the SIEM accordingly.

An incorrectly calibrated SIEM will either register false positives or not alert you at all to any potential threats. To get a SIEM optimally programmed is a complex process that takes many years and a lot of experience.

You can either decide to outsource this task to a reputable company, or you can decide to appoint your own SIEM staff.

But should you decide to appoint internal SIEM analysts and engineers, where do you find these people and how do you ensure that they have the skills needed to get the job done? 

SIEM recruitment can be a daunting and difficult task, especially given the importance of filling these roles with reputable people. This is where Stott and May comes in.
