DEFINING PSIM
PSIM as a concept emerged because end user managers of security
environments cried out for better management of their security
information. They wanted to be able to do with security data what every
other business unit does with the data from their respective business units
- that is, to make intel igent business decisions.

PSIM is a better, more flexible and much more useful way of managing
security events and the information needed to respond to incidents than
traditional command centre solutions.



THE CHALLENGE
Currently, improvisational, fragmented and off-the-cuff security
management is the norm. It's common to find security operations and
traditional command-and-control centres using paper-based processes
and not sharing information. Business units and IT departments rarely
have access to data in corporate security departments. Events are
managed separately.

PSIM is simply
Access-control-related events are monitored and managed separately
from intrusion detection systems, and separate also from environmental
the security
sensors and other alerting systems. Often the people and systems are
not even located in the same facility, inhibiting information sharing and

new drivers to integrate various systems.
