The Art of Tuning Correlation Searches within Enterprise Security

One major question I get when tuning searches onsite with customers is: “How do we make sure that we are not overrun with notables within our Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) SIEM?” This is an important question, because if left unchecked, notifications become white noise to the security analysts overwhelmed by information overload.

In this blog, we will be discussing the art of tuning correlation searches within ES.  We are going to target three out-of-the-box ES correlation searches today and how I would suggest tuning them to lower the frequency that the notables fire and, as a result, direct attention to more critical incidents.
