How To Transform Technical Security Data into Executive-Ready Metrics
To ensure the effectiveness of your IT security program and protect your organization, you need support from the business for investments in people, processes, and technology. Far too often however, business executives get overwhelmed by IT security “geek speak” and tune out when discussing security initiatives. So how can you “prove” the value of your organization’s investment in security — as well as justify required future investments — in a way business executives can understand?
First, you need to start with the basics by defining which security metrics are “right” for your organization — based on your own unique business goals. Next, you have to identify which security data you need to collect. Finally, you need an automated, consistent, reliable way to collect and report on all of this information in a language and with content executives understand. This allows you to show progress, identify gaps, and garner the support you need for additional investments.
