What Is Cyber Security Monitoring?

Cyber Security Monitoring consists of set of processes that enable businesses monitor their network infrastructure or digital assets, detect anomalies and respond to threats swiftly.

How Can Cyber Security Monitoring help your business?

  • It helps you protect customer data and detect cybersecurity attacks on time.
  • Cybersecurity monitoring helps you Identify and address security vulnerabilities before they’re exploited by attackers.
  • Reduce technical downtime during day-to-day activities.
  • Damage control: If you’re ever attacked, you can recover quickly without incurring so much loss.
  • Stay compliant with the rules and regulations as they change.

Why Choose Our Cyber Security Monitoring Service?

Our cybersecurity monitoring team has been a part of the best cyber security consulting departments on this planet.

How many vulnerable machines / apps can a company have in its network?
Our cybersecurity monitoring services help our customers establish and manage a Vulnerability management program which will gradually reduce the vulnerabilities in their network.

Email & Communications Monitoring

Getting access to a corporate account may grant a hacker access to all internal systems, too. We protect our customers by helping them monitor and detect a breach as soon as it happens and before severe damage is done.

Incident Detection

Breach simulation is an integral part of every Information Security Program. Our customers can rely on us to support them in the initiation, execution and conclusion of a Penetration Test.

Detect Over 17 Attacks With Our Cyber Security Monitoring Services

There are 17 types of cybersecurity attacks used by hackers regularly. The only way to detect one or several are being used against your business today is to have cyber security monitoring in place.

IT departments are ordinarily aware of 3 or at most 4 of them – phishing (stealing credentials through fake login forms and pages), malware, password guessing (brute force), and DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service). Even when they are aware of them, they often don’t know how to detect or configure the right logging and auditing tools for detection and noise reduction.

Most small businesses are getting hacked because their IT departments lack awareness of 14 of the 17 attack types mentioned above! Our cybersecurity monitoring services help you detect all 17 types of cyberattacks, and other new ones that emerge.

Cloud Cyber Security Monitoring for Small Businesses

Microsoft 365 is the most widely used cloud service (previously called Office 365) and is the most underestimated one, too, especially when it comes to its defense!

You see, most security settings available to customers when they purchase a license are turned off by default, and most possible policy configurations are not enabled.

To ensure the highest level of usability for the most significant percentage of businesses, they keep half the security settings disabled – but if you need to protect highly confidential data or are under attack, the default setup is not enough.

With more than 280 security settings in the cloud email and office suite productivity offering alone and hundreds of highly detailed policies to configure, our skilled security experts team is your best choice.

Employees Cybersecurity Awareness Training

We all know how people pass security awareness training. Click next, repeat, – done! And in a few minutes, people don’t remember anything – but the company is compliant.

Do the hackers care you’re compliant? Highly doubtful.

Our team continuously tests and monitors the awareness of all your employees with social engineering and hacking simulations, recording the gradual improvement and regular reporting.

Safeguard Your Business with Proactive Attack Detection

Don’t wait until you become a victim before having a cyber security monitoring strategy in place.


Does your company need login and authentication monitoring?

“We already monitor our systems and have logs enabled.”

Every IT department out there gives us this response when asked if they need external help with their security monitoring configuration.

Just look at this graph. Every one of these companies had an IT team, and every one of them firmly believed in their IT team’s ability to detect an attack before it became an incident.

There is one problem with this belief: it is wrong. IT teams have minimal experience in cybersecurity attack & defense methodologies. Their job is to build infrastructure and keep it running, much like every country has a construction industry.

We believe this usually happens before a company gets hacked – their IT department takes over the responsibility of defense. It inevitably leads to a security breach, in 100% of the cases.

Do I need log management?

If you need to work on this topic, I suggest you read the book of Anton Chuvakin – Logging and Log Management: The Authoritative Guide to Understanding the Concepts Surrounding Logging and Log Management. It has helped me tremendously in several projects, and I would like to pass on the fact that it is an incredibly useful book.

Besides that, we have a few ideas to share, which might be useful to you and are not present in the book above.

Before even starting to collect logs, you need to understand your environment. That is why audits and assessments are useful. But that is not all – you need to know how much data your devices are producing in log format every second, minute, hour, 24 hours – then you need to understand how to optimize what is logged and what is not.

It is straightforward to lose yourself in the amount of logging information generated on each of your devices, especially if you add them all at once to your SIEM (even if you add only servers/switches and firewalls and omit the desktops).

The noisiest devices in our experience are Windows systems – especially domain controllers and mail servers. Second would be your proxy servers and firewalls.

To understand how logging in a Microsoft Environment works, I suggest you read these two links:

Once you’ve read the above and understand the difference between basic and advanced audit policy configuration, move on to the next link:

It explains in detail the changes you need to make to have an optimized for detection logging environment. It also emphasizes which EventIDs you should target.

To clean up your logs and only collect what is needed, you need to know what can be discarded. To understand what is being logged, a good idea would be to export the logs from your noisiest server for a day to a CSV file, open it in Excel, and filter by EventID. It should be easy to distinguish by a percentage which events are happening most frequently and which are not.

In one case, I saw thousands of events per second with the word “Filtering engine” in them. It turns out packet logging was turned on – and every single network packet coming through the internal Windows firewall was being logged! You can imagine the number of logs generated by this server per hour and the usefulness of these logs.

Unfortunately, such a level of detail can render your SIEM and your storage incapacitated – and you should be very careful what you log and what you discard.

If you want a good start with configuring your SIEM, you could only set it to log the events in as in the book which we mentioned earlier: “Spotting the Adversary with Windows Event Log Monitoring” paper by NSA – and expand to other systems/events once you are sure you got that one right. Don’t just plug in your SIEM and all your devices into it in a shotgun manner – all your money spend on storage and SIEM will go to waste if the system is not optimized and tuned for effectiveness.

It would help if you also focused on the following events:

  • 4688 Process Create (after going to Command line process auditing and enabling logging)
  • 4663 File/Registry Auditing
  • 4075 Service Created
  • 4070 Service Changed
  • 4624 User Login Success
  • 5140 Share accessed

(List is taken from

The same process can and should be repeated for all your systems/devices. Only plug a device into your SIEM solution once you fully understand the format of logging it uses, the amount/type of events, and how you could fine-tune the number of details in these logs.

You can find an excellent set of guides on configuring Windows Logging here, too.


These links will be useful during your work on optimizing your logging environment.
