You may have heard about something called a SIEM. You may have even asked yourself: “What is a SIEM, and why does my credit union need it?”What is SIEM?To begin, here is a little background on what a SIEM is. Everybody remembers that centralized logging is a good practice. You never want to have your logs on local devices. Network devices, servers, workstations, firewalls – you want to have those centralized, for a number of reasons. If a hacker were to compromise one of those devices and the logs were stored locally, the intruder would have the ability to manipulate or delete those logs and cover their tracks.Having those logs centralized gets them off the device, making them tamper-resistant (though not 100% tamper-proof, because nothing is) and preventing hackers from covering their tracks. For these reasons, it makes sense to keep all logs centralized.Once you centralize the logs, there are mountains of data. The question becomes – how do you make sense out of those logs? This is where the SIEM proves useful. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Argentina great Diego Maradona has reiterated that he is the greatest footballer of all time. Speaking to India Today’s Boria Majumdar in an exclusive chat said he doesn’t blame Cristiano Ronaldo for calling himself to be the greatest because he scores a lot of goals. Ronaldo had recently said that he has no doubt that he is “the best player in history”.”To be honest, I find Ronaldo’s comments very funny. How can Cristiano Ronaldo talk about being the greatest when I am here. But I don’t blame Ronaldo because he is scoring goals. When I scored the goal against England in 1986 World Cup, I thought there can never be another player like me,” Maradona told India Today.”It’s hard to say one specific player is the greatest. Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar are great in current generation. There are many parameters to judge a footballer. For example, you cannot compare Zidane to Maradona. Zidane is tall and his aerial control is fantastic. But I can move swiftly between opponents legs as I am short,” he said.WATCH FULL VIDEOHe also said it was wrong to compare him with current Argentina captain, Messi.”On Messi, it’s not right to make comparisons. We are two different players who played in different eras,” he said.Marona further said he feels Germany will be the favourites to lift the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.Portugal and Real Madrid’s star striker Ronaldo was awarded the Ballon d’Or for world player of the year last week for a joint-record fifth time, going level with eternal rival and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi as the player to have won the prize the most times.advertisementThe Real Madrid forward won the award, handed out by magazine France Football, for the second consecutive year having led his side to the La Liga title with 25 goals and a successive Champions League crown, netting 12 goals including two in the 4-1 win over Juventus in the final.”I feel very happy, it’s a fantastic moment in my career,” Ronaldo said upon collecting the award, standing with his mother Maria Dolores and his oldest son Cristiano Jr.”I’ve waited a long time for this. This has been a stupendous year for me, we won the Champions League and La Liga and on a personal level I was top scorer in the Champions League.”Trophies help me win prizes like this and I have to thank my team mates at Madrid and Portugal. They’ve been very important to me.”Messi came second while Paris St Germain forward Neymar Jr, the most expensive player in the world, came third.Ronaldo, who this year also helped the national side qualify for the World Cup in Russia next year, won his first Ballon d’Or in 2008 while with Manchester United and collected it again in 2013, 2014 and 2016.The 32-year-old was last month named the Best FIFA Men’s Player in the global soccer body’s own awards ceremony.Real Madrid president Florentino Perez joined Ronaldo on stage and paid tribute to the Portuguese, who he said was the best player of all time alongside late Real great Alfredo di Stefano.”This fifth Ballon d’Or is a great honour and a great achievement for the club and Real Madrid fans around the world. Cristiano is the best player in the world, he represents the values of Real Madrid. Cristiano is the best player in history along with Di Stefano, he is his heir,” Perez said.The Ballon d’Or was first awarded in 1956 and was partnered with FIFA from 2010 to 2015, until becoming its own entity once again.
Transfers Move to China? Iniesta is still needed at Barca Ben Hayward 07:36 2/17/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Transfers Barcelona Eibar v Barcelona Eibar Primera División Opinion The midfielder signed a “lifetime” contract with the Catalan club in October and would be better off staying at Camp Nou for the foreseeable future Andres Iniesta is the longest-serving player in Barcelona’s squad. The 33-year-old arrived at La Masia at the age of 12 in 1996, and has gone on to win 30 trophies for the Catalan club. So the thought that he may leave is probably too much for many fans to bear.All players move on eventually, either calling time on their playing days like Carles Puyol, to seek a new experience elsewhere as Neymar did, or to end their careers with a lucrative move to a lesser league, such as Xavi.Iniesta, it has been reported in the Catalan press, is being tempted by such an offer from China. As well as high wages, it is said to include an agreement for advertising campaigns and also commercial promotion for his wines.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player At the age of 33, he may well be tempted. In the knowledge that life after football will be less lucrative, players place much importance on their final contract and a mega-money deal in China would mean Iniesta would never need to work again.Not that he really does anyway, of course, but even the wealthiest footballers can get a little nervous about the future when their careers are almost over. And Iniesta probably lacks the personality to be a coach or even a pundit when he hangs up his boots.The midfielder brings in around €20 million after tax as part of his current contract, the first-ever “lifetime” deal offered to a player by Barca, and he is said to have turned down almost twice that amount (€35m) to play for an unnamed Chinese club.Meanwhile, reports in Spain claim the player has invested around €5 million in his own businesses away from football, including the production of wine, cheese and olive oil, and that he has lost money in those operations.However, he still should be more than comfortable on his current wages and for the moment, he is needed at Barcelona. Firstly, because he remains one of the world’s best midfielders. And secondly, to help January signing Philippe Coutinho adapt to life at the club.Barca boss Ernesto Valverde was asked about the reports on Friday and said the club had not received any offer for Iniesta from China or anywhere else.”If that happens, we will think about it then,” he said. “I don’t have anything to say. I haven’t even thought about it. Iniesta is with us and we want him to help us a lot, as he always does.”Iniesta has played more under Valverde than he did last season under Luis Enrique, so it still seems the player has much to give at Camp Nou. And until the end of the season, he will focus on trying to help Barca win La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.Should Barca win another treble, he may just decide to walk away as Xavi did in the summer of 2015. That, however, would be a shame for the club, for the fans and for the player himself – because it will be a long time before the Camp Nou, or indeed Spanish football, sees his like again.

However, Eriksen is seemingly keen to re-sign with Tottenham, but only if they meet his demands.He told TV3 Sport: “[The future is] not something I’m thinking of. I focus on playing football, and there are many battles you have to think about which must be won.”Responding specifically to Madrid’s interest, he added: “It is not the first time that there have been rumours, and when the newspapers write something, it is not something we are masters of. If there is nothing concrete, then I just comment on rumours.”I think people know what I want, and I know what they [Tottenham] would like. There is a nice dialogue so there is nothing [new] there.”

LookToTheStars.org recently sat down with actor Dominic Pace about the causes close to his heart.Dominic PaceTell us about your favorite charities?The Dominic Pace/William Tagliaferri Scholarship. My Alma Mater, Ossining High School, in Ossining, NY, had tremendous impact on my desire to want to become an actor. I was very fortunate to have so many faculty members, family, and friends support me in my endeavors. Three years ago, I wanted to give back and give another student the same encouragement I received. It was my way of showing my gratitude to such an incredibly supportive community.Shane’s Inspiration was introduced to me by Madelyn Alfano, Owner of Maria’s Italian Kitchen here in Los Angeles. They build playgrounds for children with disabilities. One of their main events is a run at Griffith Park each Fall, which I’ve been proud to be a part of. They also accept toy donations throughout the year, and my two sons and I have gathered collections for their cause.How or why did you select to support the charities you currently work with?Ultimately, it’s all about giving back to our communities. Specific charities touch us as we’re able to relate in one way or another, and I think we’re drawn to the ones that connect us most with the human spirit.What is the most annoying thing about people that don’t help charities and why?A few years ago an old ‘friend’ couldn’t understand why I didn’t take my cash, and invest in my own children. My family and I are not rich by any means, but this person almost found it selfish to my children that I would do such a thing. I like to believe that I teach my two sons something much greater than putting $500 in their bank each year, versus helping out someone who is less fortunate than they are. As we all know, there is a lot of greed in society. Many deem their success by the car they drive, or how big their house is compared to yours. I like to believe the majority, however, understand the true definition of what it means to be rich.And how important do you think it is for celebrities to get involved in charity?Extremely important. I have such an admiration for so many fellow actors. I think Angelina Jolie comes to mind. If there is any value to fame, it is to have the ability to make a difference for the greater good of our respective societies. It’s something I plan to do my entire career.What plans do you have to make an impact on society this year?I plan to continue to donate to the grant I started for my alumni. I will also continue to play an active role in my involvement with Shane’s Inspiration, especially during the Fall and Holidays when their events increase.Find out more about Dominic Pace here.Copyright ©2014Look to the Stars
