An Investment Firm Built Its Own SIEM. Here’s How.

SIEM solutions can be expensive and difficult to manage, so one company built its own – and is pleased with the results.

At last week’s Black Hat USA, NYC-based financial technology firm Two Sigma Investments took the virtual stage to outline why their existing solution didn’t cut it, the work needed to create an in-house security information and event management (SIEM) system, and the project’s implications.
