User Activity and Behavior Monitoring in an Appliance
Great article, provides some very good insight.  I like that you've addressed some very good point.  I've worked in the past with an apliance based solution from Sergeant Laboratories called Arisotle Insight, www.aristotleinsight.com. Everyting logged to an appliance that can't be manipulated even by an adminstrator without opening the box phisically. That way you can meet some of your forensics information without hiring a expert on retainer and it also does a ton of other monitoring and anomoly detected, APT detction, overall tracking of internal user abuse etc.....  Ken

Re: Scenario 6
@RyanSepe, we can't say that with 100% confidence in all instances. Depending on how an organization is setup (e.g. size, teams/departments, geography) the "business" aspect for each scenario can fall within the responsibility of any team/department, such as Legal or Contract Management, and the "technical" aspect with another, such as IT Support or Information Security. The scenarios called out in this article describe where digital evidence is required to realize benefits in managing risk. Generally speaking, if positive benefits can be realized by implementing digital forensic readiness for a scenario, then organizations should take a closer look into how pro-actively gathering digital evidence aligns with their business strategies for effectively managing risk.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
