Measure the effectiveness of your cybersecurity program and support key strategic decisions
Even the best risk-based VM programs are unlikely to succeed without the ability to clearly measure established KPIs, evaluate and optimize the program’s overall efficiency and effectiveness, and effectively communicate the program’s value across the organization. In addition, robust reporting capabilities are essential to helping security leaders make the right decisions and enabling them to stand by those decisions when questions are raised.
This final installment of our five-part Risk-Based VM Solution Guide will help you:
- Identify metrics that align with business objectives to better communicate with senior executives, the board, and other key stakeholders
- Understand how the team is performing, and communicate and benchmark that performance to all stakeholders
- Gain and maintain the board’s confidence in the team’s abilities and keep them out of “panic mode” during times of high-profile threats
