CH de Tourcoing was using syslog to collect security logs from a growing number of systems and devices. 

  • The hospital’s IT footprint is growing with IoT systems, connections to third-party systems, and employees increasingly connecting from home, and it needed a security system capable of scaling with this growth.
  • The CISO lacked clear reporting on security threats and the hospital’s compliance posture. 


The hospital selected RSA NetWitness Platform to provide deep visibility into log data across its expanding IT environment. RSA NetWitness Platform:

  • Enables centralized log management and monitoring for logs generated by on-premises systems, public clouds and SaaS applications.
  • Enriches CH de Tourcoing’s log data with threat intelligence and business context to identify high-priority threats and reduce false positives.


RSA NetWitness Platform has automated and accelerated a lot of previously time-consuming, manual threat detection and investigation work, and it helps CH de Tourcoing demonstrate compliance with cybersecurity and healthcare privacy regulations. The evolved SIEM has proven so beneficial that the hospital’s management team decided to roll it out to a sister institution.

After exploring other solutions, we noticed that RSA NetWitness was the only tool that distinguished between medical information and machine data.
