With a rising number of threats in the industry, small and mid-sized businesses experience several difficulties in managing the security of the information management systems. It has become essential to have a robust security service, such as a Security Operation Centre (SOC), that can monitor and detect threats. It is difficult for most small and mid-sized organizations to setup such dedicated security services because of the less IT budget. In recent years, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has continued to create security management standards to help agencies in securely building integrated and company systems to manage data security. In this research, an integrated system that can identify malicious or suspicious activities inside a data management system and offer information security in a recruiting environment has been developed. This paper provides a brief description of the integrated system developed by following the NIST detection function and presents a hybrid model to detect suspicious events in the data management system. The final portions of this paper describe the experiments carried out while establishing this system in operation. The designed system is efficient in monitoring data storage systems and generating alerts when malicious or suspicious activity is detected.
