This week I sat down with Lane Roush of Arctic Wolf to discuss the big hairy beast that is...(insert dramatic music here) logging and alerting! I work with a lot of clients (and you probably do too) who want answers to these questions:

  • What in the world is going on in my network?
  • How will I know if bad stuff is happening?
  • If I do identify the bad stuff and attempt to eradicate it, how will I know if I've exorcised all the demons?

So Lane and I sat down to discuss this conundrum, and explore answers to other burning questions like:

  • Why is it so hard to separate the signal from noise when trying to figure out what's happening in the bowels of your network?
  • Should logging/alerting be a full-time job for one or more people?
  • When does it make sense to outsource these responsibilities?
