How do you know your company’s risk exposure to cybersecurity threats? Companies often collect security data without proper consideration of exactly what they should be measuring. This well-meaning but arbitrary assessment looks official but is not accurate or helpful.
In this presentation, you’ll learn about commonly recognized security metrics, the power of assumptions, how to apply basic principles for more meaningful measurements, and how to build a measurement framework that aligns with program goals.
Mike Burg, Director of Strategic Advisory at Alagen will show you how to:
- Align common security metrics with business objectives

- Apply fundamental measurement principles for more useful data
- Improve estimation skills and account for human bias
