How to measure cybersecurity effectiveness

by Thor Olavsrud

Are you measuring the value and effectiveness of your cybersecurity efforts? Most companies around the world are failing to do so, according to a recent security measurement index benchmark survey. Without establishing the proper metrics, you're flying blind.

I partnered with Gartner to perform an assessment against the NIST cyber security framework. They evaluate your effectiveness related to peers in your industry.

This helps for three reasons:

1. It's an external party, so leadership may have more confidence in their independent assessment

2. They benchmark you within the cyber security framework, which is quickly becoming a de facto standard

3. They compare you against peers in your industry. This is especially important when developing strategic (3+ year) plans
