Developing Federal Organizations’ Security and Logging Maturity Beyond NIST 800 Requirements

Discussion of NIST 800-53 has ramped up as of late with Revision 5 being delayed, and now expected to come to fruition in late 2017 or early 2018. As federal agencies await the revision, they have a rare opportunity to devote resources to maturing their security posture in line with the NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF), and to move beyond foundational, compliance oriented processes and systems.

LogRhythm, led by Timothy Young, Director of Federal Sales Engineering, will be joined by Andrew Williams, Coalfire Product Director for Cyber Risk Advisory and FedRAMP Assessment Services, on this webinar to highlight how a holistic approach to cybersecurity for Agencies can advance their security posture beyond a focus on meeting NIST 800 compliance. Both presenters will discuss the benefits of automating NIST 800 controls through SIEM tools to manage requirements for compliance, continuous monitoring and diagnostics (CDM) requirements.

These developments enable agencies to work off three levels of monitoring, by:

  • In real time, establishing monitoring, detection and response capabilities to improve resiliency over your network and mitigate breaches
  • On a day to day basis, providing security analysts with consolidated log repositories that can be analyzed via security platforms that unify security tools
  • At an on demand level, mapping reports to specific controls, enabling agencies to quickly demonstrate their capabilities to auditors/compliance persona
