Metrics are tangible values that quantify progress towards a goal. An analytic system combines metrics from numerous sources to assist CISOs and their peers to understand trends and patterns.
Metrics play a key role in a larger analytics system. As integral as cybersecurity is to business operations, IT, legal, risk, and compliance, adding cybersecurity metrics to the business’s analytic system will reduce cost, increase efficiency, provide actionable goals for managers, create tangible goals for senior leadership, and enable key performance indicators for boards.
The Fidelis Elevate ADR Platform and Fidelis services are used by many organizations to create and update their organizational security programs aligned to a specific set of standards. While each of these standards originated for different reasons, their motivations are centered on the security of IT infrastructures. Examples of security standards include Critical Security Controls, NIST 800-53, ISO 27002, and NIST 800-171, FISMA, COBIT 5, PCI DSS 3.0, and HIPAA. Consequently, all of these standards have similar and overlapping requirements.
At Fidelis, our Cybersecurity Experts understand not only each of these standards individually, but how they cross correlate between one another.
