PoC template for SIEM

Hi community,

I'm the owner of a tech services company. 

I'm looking for help with a template for a SIEM PoC (high-level, generic document). Can anyone help? 

Thank you,

Hello Dan, 

Most SIEM vendors have a PoC script that they will run you through, but it is typically customized for their architecture. Are you looking for a basic PoC script, or something tailored to a specific use case?

(Disclaimer: I work for Securonix. If you're looking to begin a SIEM purchase exercise, I advise incorporating next-gen SIEM requirements in your PoC.)

Hi, here you can download a vendor-neutral reference-document.
Good luck with your decision (make it slowly).
