Abstract. Monitoring is the last step of the information security management process. It is intended to evaluate not the state of security itself, but rather the accuracy and quality of prior security evaluation and risk treatment applied. In other words, it is supposed to provide the answer, whether chosen countermeasures and all other decisions based on the security assessment and evaluation results were accurate, proper and sufficient. If during this phase of the security management process, any significant anomaly is found within the system, it means that either one of the accepted ‘as is' risks occurred, or that the applied countermeasures did not provide assumed protection in some point of the system. In such a case it is necessary to identify all the areas that require security audit repeat. As information systems grow in complexity, an integrated solution for security monitoring that will prevent system overload caused by monitoring is proposed in this paper.
