The University of Lethbridge leverages Cloud SIEM Enterprise to better secure complex environment
Due to the wealth of sensitive information higher education institutions are responsible for, EDUCAUSE named information security as the top IT issue the education sector needs to address. Coupled with evidence that financially-motivated attacks against higher education are on the rise, it’s clear that universities remain a prime target of online criminals and nation state attackers. To ensure it remains secure in the face of these growing threats, the University of Lethbridge set out to strengthen its security posture. The first step? Creating a next-generation security operations center (SOC).
To address these challenges, the University of Lethbridge implemented the Cloud SIEM Enterprise (CSE) solution. As a cloud-native, advanced Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, CSE allowed the U of L to immediately gain the desired visibility into its data without the need for maintenance of a complex infrastructure. In addition, the open nature of the platform will enable the University to seamlessly integrate its existing security solutions with CSE, further increasing its ability to quickly and efficiently identify interesting events that should be investigated.

By fusing data from security tools and automating the correlation and analysis of threats, the Cloud platform provides actionable information via Sumo Logic Insights that allows the U of L’s security team to be more proactive and get ahead of potential threats.
