The Labs Compliance Research team within LogRhythm realizes our customers transition through a maturing process as they implement controls, policies, personnel, and system solutions to achieve compliance within regulatory frameworks. As their compliance programs mature, organizations need a SIEM solution that adapts to the changes they have implemented. A compliance offering through a SIEM that cannot be readily modified detracts value from a customer’s experience. While working to build their compliance programs, organizations need the ability to integrate their improvements into the SIEM to a robust cybersecurity infrastructure.
Audits and ongoing compliance programs might be viewed as compulsory, but organizations can actually leverage regulatory frameworks to create competitive advantages. As an organization progresses across the compliance maturity model (below), a security foundation emerges around policies, controls, systems, personnel, and understanding. The organization begins by developing key resources such as system and account classifications, risk assessments, scope definition, process and data flows, and audit results year-over-year. All of these factors are ingredients to constructing a solid yet resilient compliance foundation that enables an organization to transition into a more mature security posture. This transition occurs as the organization builds its security program on a holistic and transparent understanding of its environment and risk profile.
LogRhythm aims to provide a road map through which SIEM empowers an organization to grow into a security program. Our approach allows organizations to start basic and transition into more enhanced facets of LogRhythm SIEM and other solutions where data protection not only achieves regulatory compliance, but also becomes a competitive advantage.
