2017 Trends in Security Metrics and Security Assurance Measurement
When it comes to IT security assurance measurement, it’s not always clear how IT security metrics can or should be used to measure security program performance.
Questions quickly arise when discussing security assurance measurement and security metrics with IT security leaders. For example, what approaches are security teams taking today in terms of security metrics collection, reporting, and usage? Who are security metrics shared with and how often? And most importantly, are current approaches to using security effective in establishing IT security as a strategic partner to the business?
The “2017 Trends in Security Metrics and Security Assurance Measurement” survey of IT security professionals, along with its accompanying report, was commissioned by Tenable to measure the attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions of IT security professionals about security metrics. It was also designed to discover if current approaches to security assurance measurement are meeting the needs of IT security teams, CISOs, business executives and the board.
