Must have security use cases

Hi team!

By your own experience, what use cases should be monitoring? What the most triggered use cases?

As I understand there are no reason to turn on all use cases. There are some general, some the most critical that not depend on client infrastructure.

Re: Must have security use cases

Users added to a security enabled group (Domain Admins) is typically the first rule I setup for clients.


Re: Must have security use cases

I would say correlations of malware (virus across multiple systems, recurring malware)
If you have GTI suscription or any blacklist to see if a machine connects to a bad reputation IP.
If you are enforcing DNS on machines there is a correlation when someone tries to connect to another DNS.

You can also take a look at the content packs if any of those make sense to you and you have the needed devices .

Re: Must have security use cases

No one else wants to share their experiences with use cases? 🙂

From my experience one of the useful use cases was that someone login to office365 from blacklisted IPs. More than once there was a counteraction to the compromise of the account.
