Information security is full of products that generate alerts. Users will often centralize the alerts through the use of a SIEM. When the SOC has to analyze and correlate alerts they are often left with an incomplete picture and left guessing on what happened. By gathering raw logs, not just alerts, we will show how analysts can be more effective in their analysis.
