Many IT pros say log data management lacking


According to a recent TIBCO Software survey, 82 percent of IT departments think they need to improve tracking of the necessary data to detect possible cybercrimes in their network, while 65 percent said a major challenge is working with log data for forensic analysis and correlation.

"Increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks and growing mounds of data are placing unprecedented pressure on organizations," said Raj Verma, vice president of worldwide marketing of TIBCO. "Most find it difficult to keep up with, and most importantly prevent, the millions of security incidents across global networks."

The "Sorting Through the Noise: SANS Eighth Annual 2012 Log and Event Management Survey" also found the startling statistic that 58 percent of IT professionals at businesses think they need to focus more on proper management of the log data data that would help them prevent computer hacking incidents.

While it is clear that IT professionals need to more thoroughly manage log data to improve their cybersecurity, all businesses should be sure to invest in cyber liability insurance in case data is compromised and sensitive customer information is leaked or lost.
