Quick Win Industry Agnostic Dashboards presented at BSidesCHARM 2015

by Craig Bowser,

Summary : Dashboards are a critical capability of a Security Information Event Monitor (SIEM) as they are able to display the near real time status of the health, operational availability, security posture and compliance level of networks of all sizes. While there are numerous papers, blog posts and examples of dashboards that provide deep insights, specific security alerts or complicated compliance metrics for your network, I wanted to create a list of dashboards that provided a solid starting point for Security Operation Centers to use when they installed their first SIEM. The ten suggested Quick Win Industry Agnostic Dashboards on this list were chosen because of their ease of implementation and ability to use simple graphics to quickly give SOC personnel an initial view into the security posture of a network.
