Security metrics gauge performance
The language of security is metrics. But in order for security metrics to be useful, you and others in the organization – including business executives and the board – have to know how to interpret and apply them.
Most metrics fail to provide true value.
Far too often, the security metrics provided to business executives and the board are not fully understood and fail to deliver any real value to the organization.
SMART security metrics inform and influence.

- Gauge their organization’s security posture
- Understand and measure departmental progress towards meeting corporate cybersecurity goals
