    With the advances of technology and the reoccurrence of data leaks, cyber security is a bigger challenge than ever before. Cyber attacks evolve as quickly as the technology itself, and hackers are finding more innovative ways to break security controls to access confidential data and to interrupt services. Hackers reinvent themselves using new technology features as a tool to expose companies and individuals. Therefore, cyber security cannot be reactive but must go a step further by implementing proactive security controls that protect one of the most important assets of every organization: the company's information.

    This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides information about implementing IBM QRadar® for Security Intelligence and Event Monitoring (SIEM) and protecting an organization's networks through a sophisticated technology, which permits a proactive security posture.
