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
