SIEM Risk & Threat Discovery

The first part of any mature cybersecurity posture is identifying your risks and use cases. Apto’s SIEM Discovery helps you build a comprehensive and actionable snapshot of your organisation’s data security posture and provides you with actionable steps to ensure your SIEM provides full coverage.

The Right Time for SIEM Discovery

Keeping on top of the security needs of your organisation can be difficult, especially in times of increased growth and business change and when internal resources are limited. To identify threats and how to manage them, a business must identify risks to key services, infrastructure, and data. Other areas in which SIEM Discovery can help:


  • You need to comply with regulations such as NIST, MITRE and ISO
  • You’ve never had a second opinion on your SIEM implementation
  • You need to verify and prove your security posture to your customers
  • You need oversight over an increasing third-party supply chain
  • Your organisation has recently been the victim of a cyberattack
  • You’re wondering if you have gaps in your security posture


Even organisations that have a relatively mature security model in place may decide that they need an external view of their structure and risk profile so that any gaps or priorities can be identified and addressed.

Multi-Step Threat Discovery Process

Apto’s discovery assessment process will be completely customised to meet your goals for compliance, confidence or validation of your security posture. We’ll take the time to really understand your organisation and where it currently stands and provide a clear assessment of your SIEM maturity and how to take this forward.

SIEM assessments require collaboration with many parts of your organisation; it will include a review of your non-technical and technical security policies and frameworks, so we actively encourage engagement from a wide range of stakeholders.

We’ll guide you through a typical 10-day process that has clear methodical phases that encompass data discovery, analysis of threats, report preparation and review.


Scope of Apto Discovery

Apto offers a comprehensive threat management approach to enhance your security posture. The core of the SIEM lifecycle is to identify and strategically manage threats. We help our clients construct a meticulous business risk register by assessing the risks to vital services, infrastructure and data. Instead of diving into detailed threat definitions, we focus on broader risk categories.

We meticulously score business risks based on probability and impact to gain a clear understanding of potential vulnerabilities. SIEM Discovery involves implementing a robust access management system, tailoring entitlements to the organization’s lifecycle, and ensuring security from onboarding to departure. Our holistic approach extends to examining threats against key business solutions and services, guaranteeing a comprehensive security strategy.
