Building a realistic cybersecurity risk profile for an organization is challenging. It isn't just about collecting more information and assembling more data points – it's instead about framing metrics (many of which organizations probably already have) and tailoring them in such a way that they are contextualized, actionable, and relevant.

In this Dark Reading Webcast, we'll explore:

  • What makes a good metric – what data is being looked at, what benchmarks to compare it to, and why
  • How to tailor risk metrics - how to align metrics with the target audience, creating different "views" of data and creating a tailored picture for your business
  • Integration of internal and external information - ways to align incident and operational information you may have with information about external threats (i.e. Threat Intelligence) to prioritize efforts
  • Strategies to implement – how to get started with a metrics program (particularly if past efforts have been less than successful)
