Make Your Data Work for You

“Make your money work for you.” It’s something that I’ve heard financial planners say for years. But recently, I started correlating this notion with what we do on a daily basis.

In talking with others in the info sec space, it seems that collecting the data isn’t the problem—that part is easy. But you’ll spend all of your time trying to get that data out in a way that is meaningful and actionable. The struggle is real.

This is what got me thinking about that old financial planning adage—we need to make our data work for us. Why spend the rest of your life trying to pull data out of a legacy system?

Data Deluge

Let’s face it—not everyone has the time, resources or specific skills to write custom scripts to get data out of a SIEM. With different, often hard-to-read languages and mountains of low-level messages, it can take a lot of time to try to interpret what is important.

Lost Historical Knowledge

Another issue is losing knowledge transfer. For example, in the case of most military organizations, jobs can rotate every 12–16 months. In this instance, it’s essential to have a system that’s easy to use with accessible knowledge transfer. But this isn’t just an issue in the military. Many organizations face the same problem—if you lose the expert, you lose the knowledge with them.

Solving for These Issues

So if there are two issues that most people face in our world, how do we solve for them? These problems are on the minds of our team in everything that we develop. Our LogRhythm Labs team never stops writing new AI Engine rules so that you can have a library of out-of-the-box scripts at your fingertips to help you make sense of all of the data—so you can find the proverbial needle in a haystack.
