When it comes to compliance, all enterprises struggle to keep up with the latest versions of regulatory standards. On October 25, 2022, the newest ISO 27001 update was released, providing relief to auditors and enterprises alike. They were eagerly awaiting this updated and consolidated version of ISO 27001, after multiple corrigenda were added in 2014, 2015, and 2017. Different organizations were adopting different versions of this standard, and this caused problems for both themselves and auditors.
Notable changes were made in the clauses and the security controls in Annexure A. While the edits made to the controls signify a change in outlook towards implementing an information security management system (ISMS), the changes made to clauses indicate a shift in perspective when it comes to cybersecurity.
Complying with ISO 27001:2022 security controls using SIEM
Implementing an ISO-27001-compliant ISMS means implementing strict access control measures to upkeep the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive data. Organizations need to record and regularly review event logs, protect them from unauthorized access, and ensure secure logon procedures are followed. This is where a SIEM solution steps in.
SIEM solutions can:
➤ Integrate with threat intelligence feeds to provide real-time alerts when network activity involving blacklisted IPs and URLs is detected.
➤ Monitor remote systems by keeping an eye out for VPN or cloud-based attacks.
➤ Keep an eye on suspicious cloud app usage and spot activities like malicious file downloads using CASB capabilities.
