How do we show the performance and results of the cybersecurity strategy or investment?
Reporting does not provide any meaning or full value unless the progress aligns to a strategy or roadmap. My simple guiding principle would be the following:
- Ensure you have a framework, or roadmap that defines and informs your investment in technology or implementation strategy.
- Determine what type of reporting is required to demonstrate progress against your roadmap and develop Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that will measure the progress of the reporting metric you are developing.
- Establish a risk statement associated with what you are trying to mitigate, and develop Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) that demonstrate risk reduction as your implementation progresses.
