Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:
- You leave the executive meeting and right away you get four follow up meeting invitations from the engineering managers: do you walk your team through why you are red and how you can get to green?
- Does any contract require your organization to perform security vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and security configuration compliance scans to identify weaknesses?
- 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?
- What are the interactions that you find interesting between security-testing tools and other types of automated tools, automated build tools, automated performance managers?
- 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?
- Does the solution look beyond the files themselves and perform deep inspection of packaging and wrappers used to encrypt malicious code and deliver it into IT environments?
- Are you able to recognize a new threat to your environment and detect likely attack techniques on a timely basis and align your protection measures to meet the threat?
- What kind of infrastructure vulnerabilities do you find through periodic infrastructure vulnerability scans, how severe are they, and how quickly do you fix them?
- If your organizations current level of loss exposure is an important piece of information that is needed to set risk appetite, how do you go about measuring it?
- How do you scale powerful data discovery applications to thousands of users while maintaining enterprise-grade levels of performance, reliability, and security?

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.
