Client Experience - Theft of Sensitive Patient Date Prevented by SIEM System

Client Experience - Theft of Sensitive Patient Date Prevented by SIEM System

The Problem

  • This insurance client has a multi-server environment which requires HIPAA compliance

  • Trusted business partners have access to a secure web portal where they can upload or download highly sensitive business data

  • The audit logs for the server and web portal generate thousands of events per day and it is known that the data is desirable for theft


The Solution

  • Dolce Vita implements EventTracker SIEM system and tied it to the firewall and key servers in the environment

  • Within 48 hours the SIEM system detected and confirmed a number of attempted hacking attacks against the secure web server

  • The progression of the attempts allows these attacks to be tied back to specific geographic regions, and this information is used to harden the configuration of the web portal


The Impact

  • The hardening results in earlier warning with reduced risk to HIPAA data at very low cost to the client

  • The SIEM system runs continuously and detects both overt and subtle attacks which allows security modifications to be made based upon actionable threat intelligence
