Configure event groups in SEM

Event groups organize similar events for use with rules and filters. For example, if you add an event group to a rule, the rule will fire any time an event in the group occurs. SEM ships with more than a dozen predefined event groups, for example: virus/scanner events, process start/stop events, change management events, and so on.
