An Event is a single, observable item in a monitored data source such as a packet or token, aka the "raw data".

An Alert is an Alarm that has been escalated to a customer/MSP.

An Alarm is a pattern of activity that implies a potential risk. An alarm could indicate an identified threat to an information system, violate acceptable use policies, or the circumvention of standard security practices.
