Effective Measurement Is Crucial to Securing Your Organisation
Most aspects of life can be measured. This applies equally in security. The key is defining and collecting the right information. It must then be interpreted and shared, but this is easier said than done:
Organisations often don’t have metrics for all their critical security controls. This leaves them blind to security weaknesses.
Having little or no governance places the whole practice of measurement on unstable foundations and limits stakeholder buy-in.
Data points mean little to business audiences without a clear context. There is a difference between having the metrics and telling the story.
Measuring security is an ongoing journey, and will constantly evolve. Every organisation should do it, and with the right support, they can!
