Optimize Splunk Security Detections Through Risk-Based Alerting

When you receive hundreds — or even thousands — of security alerts each day, it’s hard to keep up. The average security team simply doesn’t have enough resources to investigate each alert properly, resulting in critical threats flying under the radar.  

At SP6, we use Risk-Based Alerting (RBA) to filter out excess alerts in your Splunk environment without the risk of tuning out actual threats. By incorporating additional context and attribution into your detection logic, we’ll help you reduce overall alert volume, improve detection quality, and advance your security maturity. 

Don’t let your security analysts waste their time sifting through low-risk or false-positive alerts. Leverage the expertise of SP6’s Splunk Core Certified Consultants to optimize your detections and eliminate excess noise.

SP6's Risk-Based Alerting Services Are Ideal For:

Companies that lack sufficient security staff to investigate large quantities of alerts

Organizations that are worried about tuning out legitimate threats in the name of alert reduction

Teams that want to align their Splunk detections with business risk and trusted security frameworks

Benefits to Your Organization

By prioritizing alerts based on risk levels, risk-based alerting helps to reduce the number of low-priority alerts that overwhelm security analysts. This reduces alert fatigue, allowing analysts to focus their attention on the alerts that matter.

By incorporating additional context and attribution into your alerting, RBA improves true-positive rates and reduces false positives. This allows you to identify scenarios such as slow, prolonged attacks that are difficult to detect with traditional correlation searches. 

Risk-based alerting allows you to take security frameworks like MITRE ATT&CK, NIST, and CIS 20 and annotate your searches with the relevant tactics and controls, fine-tuning your security strategy.

With fewer alerts to sift through, security teams can allocate their time and resources more efficiently. This means they can respond more quickly to genuine threats, minimizing the impact of security breaches.
