Continuous monitoring is more than just watching data – it is the realization of System State Intelligence, which integrates disjointed information from siloed security controls, adds context to security events and lets you quickly shortens the time and effort required to identify security incidents.
SSI provides leading indicators of breach activity by being aware of the state of your systems—how they’re configured and whether they’re configured according to your policy. Once you’ve achieved a known and trusted state, SSI continuously monitors for changes and deviations from your baseline. It detects suspicious events and enables security context and prioritization.
This presentation provides a general overview of continuous monitoring strategies, then delves deeper into federal requirements for achieving a state of continuing monitoring. These materials explain why continuous monitoring is critical for risk mitigation, and describes how an effective continuous monitoring strategy works to bring together data from different security controls.
