Dashboards are a critical capability of a Security Information Event Monitor (SIEM) as they are able to display the near real time status of the health, operational availability, security posture and compliance level of networks of all sizes. While there are numerous papers, blog posts and examples of dashboards that provide deep insights, specific security alerts or complicated compliance metrics for your network, I wanted to create a list of dashboards that provided a solid starting point for Security Operation Centers to use when they installed their first SIEM. These are suggested quick-win, industry-agnostic dashboards which were chosen because of their ease of implementation and simple graphical presentation that provide SOC personnel an initial view into the security posture of a network.
