This requires a solution that can scale up and down to large and small offices with real-time 24x7 monitoring to protect sensitive data. • They are big targets for malware and ransomware with attacks motivated by cyber espionage and monetary gain.

6 Remote Managed SIEM Security Information Event Management SIEM centralizes the storage and interpretation of security data including logs and allows near real-time analysis for rapid defense and recovery. The central repository also enables forensics trend analysis and automated compliance reporting. Getting results from SIEM technology requires dedicated IT security expertise. A Remote Managed SIEM allows firms to leverage the expertise of the SIEM vendor while retaining control of the network. The remote team escalates security incidents with context to the firm’s in-house IT team so they can perform remediation.

7 Remote Managed SIEM Security Experts People with the right skills are critical to success in thwarting security breaches and are often the hardest to assemble train and retain. At the 2016 Gartner Risk Security Summit more than 75 of attendees agreed that they lacked the internal staff to manage all their security activities. Cybersecurity is a complex and nuanced field and legal organizations require different skills to achieve their unique goals. As a result not every cybersecurity professional has or needs to have all of the relevant skills that a legal firm could need. Unfortunately the demand for cybersecurity professionals far outpaces the available supply. However a Remote Managed SIEM allows your firm to leverage a team of highly skilled security experts.
