Protective Monitoring GPG13

Assuria Cyber Security software solutions are designed to facilitate Protective Monitoring services and to assist organisations in complying with UK GPG13, as well as other international standards such as ISO27001 and PCI-DSS. Our Forensic Log Management/SIEM solution, Assuria Log Manager (ALM), provides built-in GPG13 analysis, alerting and reporting features through the optional ALM GPG13 Content Pack.

ALM is a proven, CCTM accredited GPG13 solution, and is deployed and fully operational in UK classified projects up to the highest levels of classification, including IL5.

Protective Monitoring has various meanings in IT Security terms, but it is best known as a specific term used by UK Government (also known as Good Practice Guide 13, or GPG13) to refer to a set of recommended processes and technologies aimed at improving risk profiles and reducing Cyber Risk. In other words, Protective Monitoring provides essential oversight of IT systems across the whole enterprise.

Specifically, the Protective Monitoring Controls (also known as PMCs) define a set of control alerts and reports that provide feedback to those with responsibility for organisation risk and the performance of Protective Monitoring systems. This includes such information security control activities as inspecting firewall logs, investigating operating system security alerts and monitoring Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). Protective Monitoring also includes putting in place mechanisms for collecting ICT log information and configuring ICT logs in order to provide an audit trail of security relevant events of interest.

Assuria's forensic SIEM software solution Assuria Log Manager (ALM) was designed from the ground up to deliver flexible, customisable and cost effective Protective Monitoring to GPG13 standards as well as other international standards, such as ISO27001 and PCI-DSS. ALM provides built-in GPG13 analysis, alerting and reporting features and is used by UK government and public sector organisations for GPG13 Protective Monitoring up to IL5 level, both directly and via service delivery partners. ALM is available as an In-premise software installation, a fully configured appliance or as a Managed Service from the Falanx Assuria SOC.
