Handy synopsis for you

You face more, and more dangerous threats every day - drive-by infections, APTs, executive targeted phishing to name three. At the same time, the potential attack surface of IT systems are growing rapidly: your VMs, your cloud, your users’ mobile devices are all at risk. You have probably spent a large part of 2014 developing external-facing web applications. How do you secure them all?

Reg readers tell us they have multiple tools handling security, making it impossible to get an idea of security in real time. Operating best-effort security isn’t enough, but security Information and event management, touted as the answer to this, has so far been complicated to set up and hard to interpret.

Has this changed? Is SIEM the future of enterprise security and, if so, what will that future look like? Raj Samani, CTO, from McAfee of Intel Security, joins us in the Reg studio to explain how SIEM can work, what it does, and how to fit it into your existing security environment. Tony Lock from Freeform Dynamics will join him, and Tim Phillips will put your questions to the experts. ®
