You'll discover how to quantify hard-to-measure security activities, compile and analyze all relevant data, identify strengths and weaknesses, set cost-effective priorities for improvement, and craft compelling messages for senior management.

  • Capture valuable data from firewall and antivirus logs, third-party auditor reports, and other resources
