More About Protective Monitoring
Specifically, the Protective Monitoring Controls (also known as PMCs) define a set of control alerts and reports that provide feedback to those with responsibility for organisation risk and the performance of Protective Monitoring systems.
This includes such information security control activities as inspecting firewall logs, investigating operating system security alerts and monitoring Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). Protective Monitoring also includes putting in place mechanisms for collecting ICT log information and configuring ICT logs in order to provide an audit trail of security relevant events of interest.
Assuria’s forensic SIEM software solution Assuria Log Manager (ALM) was designed from the ground up to deliver flexible, customisable and cost effective Protective Monitoring to GPG13 standards as well as other international standards, such as ISO27001 and PCI-DSS.
