The Numbers Game: Tracking Information Security Metrics That Matter Webcast
As a security executive, you’re tasked to continually manage performance and get the most out of your technical, fiscal and human resources. You probably measure and track a ton of operational metrics, such as the percentage of users who undergo background checks or the number of virus infections addressed during the year. You’re undoubtedly sitting on a lot of data, but are you gaining metrics that provide clarity into practical security questions like “Can we be breached?” You don’t have time to waste sifting through reams of data and postulating which of your controls are working and where you have critical exposures – you need actionable data based on real-world security metrics.
