Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 932 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Security Metrics improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 932 standard requirements:
- You leave the executive meeting and right away you get four follow up meeting invitations from the engineering managers: Can you walk your team through why you are red and how you can get to green?
- Other technical choices depend on the security measures applied by the cloud provider to the cloud service. Does the provider implement strong user authentication techniques for the service?
- How do you prove to a client or an auditor that adequate security measures are in place, now that this is not only your problem, and a shared responsibility between you and a cloud provider?
- Mobile computing & communications: is a formal policy in place and appropriate security measures adopted to protect against the risks using mobile computing and communication facilities?
- Do you know everyone who has access to your systems, how they protect systems, who holds your data and how they protect it, or all the applications the data has passed through?
- Physical security measures exist over computer, computer terminals and storage media to prevent unauthorized access and loss of integrity of data and processing (hardware)?
- Does your organization have a Risk Management program aimed at third-party vendors that store, process or have access to vendors are applying appropriate security measures?
- Is there agreement on what metrics are communicated to the board and executive management to keep them sufficiently aware of your organizations information security status?
- Has the business agreed on objectives and performance metrics for enterprise security that include measurement and regular reporting of the value that it generates?
- What can governments and the private sector do when faced by rapidly growing complexity, lack of meaningful metrics, divergent incentives and ambiguous definitions?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Security Metrics investments work better.
This Security Metrics All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
