SIEM - Design and Integration Services
Expertise in delivery from start to finish - that is Company to our clients, and it is what we
bring to every SIEM engagement. Leveraging a phased approach, we systematically guide
you through the requisite stages of solution deployment. We collaborate with each client
to design a plan geared around your specific needs.
Typical SIEM Project Phases appear below.
Phase 1 – Assessment & Requirements Gathering
In Phase 1, COMPANY will perform a detailed assessment of the client’s environment to
inventory the existing security architecture and identify the basic requirements of the
SIEM. These requirements provide the essential building blocks of a well-operating real-
time security monitoring solution. COMPANY and the client, including team members
from Information Security, IT Risk, and others to be identified, will jointly review the
requirements and validate that all of the client’s needs and requirements are addressed.
Work during Phase 1 – Assessment & Requirements Gathering includes the following
1. Understand the current enterprise security architecture and its critical
components; determine where standards exist for ESA configuration and where
consolidation is required.
2. Understand the current tools and procedures used to determine potential risk and
procedures used to confirm regulatory compliance.
3. Identify the business objectives to be met by the development and
implementation of a SIEM.
4. Identify the business-critical resources to be monitored by the SIEM.
5. Manage Vendor Selection and/or RFP Process
Phase 2 – System Design

Use Cases, and author a detailed technical design of the planned SIEM deployment.
Work during Phase 2 – System Design includes the following tasks:
1. Conversion of SIEM Business Requirements to Level 1 Conceptual Use Cases
2. Creation of Level 2 Technical Use Cases to support Level 1 Conceptual Use Cases
3. Creation of logical and physical SIEM architecture designs
4. Creation of SIEM integration project plan
Phase 3 – Integration Services
During Phase 3, COMPANY will implement an enterprise, Security Information & Event
Management system in both Development and Production environments, based on the
