Unlimited Attempts AllowedDetails
For this assignment, you will take on the role of a cybersecurity engineer at a large organization. The company has grown quickly over the last several years, but the size of the security operations team hasn’t grown at the same rate. After a series of security incidents, your manager has decided it’s time to invest in SIEM technology to help security analysts identify events faster and with more consistency.
You have been tasked with building the case for acquiring a SIEM platform by creating a presentation you will give to IT leadership. The data you gather here will serve two purposes for the organization: it will sell leadership on why a SIEM is necessary and serve as a guide for the procurement team that will ultimately draft a request for proposal (RFP) to send to vendors.
You will need to prepare a PowerPoint presentation with voice-over narration. Your presentation should be between 12-15 slides. Your presentation should cover the following topics:
- The challenges you’re hoping to solve with a SIEM platform
- How a SIEM will solve those problems
- The requirements for the SIEM platform (avoid vendor specifics at this point)
- Identify possible hurdles and propose possible solutions or ways those hurdles can be avoided
Additional Requirements & Tips for Success:
- Be sure to include a cover slide, introduction slide, conclusion slide, and references slide. These will not count towards the required number of slides.
- Remember your target audience and the goal of your presentation: gain executive buy-in that will be essential to the project’s success.
- For help with recording the voice-over for the presentation, use this guideLinks to an external site. provided by Microsoft.
- You should use independent research within this PowerPoint presentation. One source that may help get you started is the SIEM Buyer’s Guide for 2021Links to an external site. provided by Splunk. While the material is slanted towards Splunk, they still offer a solid overview of many of the topics mentioned above.
- With your references slide, plan to put citations in APA format. Information on APA formatting can be found through the Maryville University Library citation libguideLinks to an external site.
