Episode 15: Better Security Through Better Metrics
Planning and enacting a proper cybersecurity strategy requires data, usually in the form of metric data. These tracked statistics, qualitative and quantitative, are analyzed and organized into stories that can help a security operation see vulnerability and places to focus their attention. Metrics, however, can just as easily distract leadership and waste effort and expense. Knowing which metrics to consult and when is as valuable as tracking the data in the first place.
Edward Marchewka, founder of 3LC Solutions, joins onSecurity to talk with Stel about what metrics are worth basing decisions on, times metrics don’t tell the whole story, and essential things to remember when considering qualitative and quantitative data.
