Hitting Snooze on Alert Fatigue in Application Security

Medical devices, subway car doors, severe weather warnings, heavy machinery, car alarms, software security alerts. They all notify you to indicate that something is wrong so that you can take action to prevent harm. Hospital monitors can detect a wide range of issues, from an incorrect dose of medication to an irregular heartbeat and beyond. They can quite literally save a life. The same goes for severe weather alerts that warn of impending tornadoes or hurricanes.


3 Alert Sources That Will Keep Your SOC Busy and Welcome Automation in 2021

With the work-from-home shift showing little signs of letting up and new IT spending habits taking shape, organizations should prepare themselves now for an adjustment in security strategy in 2021. The obvious ramifications of remote work from a security operations perspective has meant an increase in threats, as well as a doubling down of the cloud-first mentality which has helped organizations maintain business as usual and nimbly react to new WFH dynamics. What does 2021 hold?


Alert Fatigue And Automation Fatigue

Alert fatigue is a well-known phenomenon with security products – the security team gets a lot of alerts (from the SIEM, for example), it tries to triage and act upon all of them, but at some point, they are so many and so few of them are actual threats, that the security team just ignores them. And that leads to both overworked security teams and an increased risk for missing an actual threat. Why is that happening? It’s hard to tweak a system right, no matter how flexible it is.


SIEM Alerts Best Practices

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools play a vital role in helping your organization in discovering threats and analyzing security incidents. Logsign’s internal team continuously makes correlation rules and alerts so that your team’s workload is minimized. In our previous posts, we discussed generating important reports and deriving maximum possible benefits from use cases. In this article, we will be discussing SIEM alerts best practices.

Demo | Access Workflow Integration Using Pager Duty | Privileged Access Management | Teleport

Teleport allows you to implement industry-best practices for SSH and Kubernetes access, meet compliance requirements, and have complete visibility into access and behavior. But invariably, change happens. Teleport allows users to request elevated privileges in the middle of their command-line sessions and create fully auditable dynamic authorizations . These requests can be approved or denied in PagerDuty or anywhere else via a flexible Authorization Workflow API.

The Importance of Alert Grouping

Alerts are one of the most important information sources when it comes to cyber security. They notify and inform your IT team about ongoing cyber threats, security events and any other incident that might threaten your organization. In this article, we will focus on alert grouping and why it is important for the security of your organization.


Alert Fatigue Is a Big Cybersecurity Problem

Alarms and alerts surround us every day. From the moment our clocks wake us up in the morning, we rely on alarms for many things. But what happens when those alarms and alerts malfunction? What does it do to us and how does that affect our day to day life? Recall the Dallas Emergency Alert Malfunction. As it turns out, getting tired of these alarms can prove dangerous to cybersecurity.
