About Security Information Event Management

Security Information Event Management (SIEM)-as-a-Service is designed to strengthen an institution's security posture by simplifying the management and monitoring of your business-critical systems and applications. SIEM-as-a-Service offers members all the benefits of a SIEM solution without the challenges of securing capital investment. BCNET manages the infrastructure, maintenance, upgrades, patches, capacity planning, backups and security of the entire system and hosts in a secure educloud environment. SIEM software collects data to provide a holistic view on an organization's security posture. The software collects data from the different technologies within your system, monitors and analyzes that data for deviations and possible security risks, and then takes the appropriate action against those threats. 

SIEM Works by Combining Two Technologies: 

  • Collects data from log files for analysis and reports on security threats and events. 
  • Conducts real-time system monitoring, notifies network admins about important issues and establishes correlations between security events. 

National SIEM Collaboration 

In collaboration with 13 provincial, territorial and federal partners of the National Research and Education Network (NREN), we acquired and developed security expertise to support the effective deployment of SIEM infrastructure for the NREN. Today, our national cohort of SIEM professionals continuously collaborate for ongoing learning and knowledge sharing. 

Member institutions can leverage our experience in implementing and managing SIEM environments.
