What is Cybersecurity Performance Management?

Cybersecurity performance management is the process of understanding your cybersecurity program’s maturity mapped to top-level risks and the associated level of investments required to improve cyber security posture to adequate levels, aligned to the organization’s goals.

Performance management is not a new concept. As our Board Advisor Steve Katz says,

“The security program should be run like a business within the business.”

Much of this definition applies when you look to improve understanding the cyber security posture of your organization. Questions that you will be asked include:

  1. How are we performing against our adopted control framework(s)?
  2. What is our current maturity level?
  3. Are we making adequate investments? If not, where do investments need to be increased and why?
  4. What is our ideal future run-rate investment on cyber security?
  5. How much risk will we have once our run-rate is achieved?

These and other questions will be asked by the CEO, CFO, and your Board of Directors, so it is important to have ready the business narrative describing your cyber security posture.
