Goal Management: the CISO’s Dilemma

Published On: December 17, 2015Categories: Blog

Just like any part of an organization, it is important for a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to lay out goals that you would like your information security team to accomplish. Depending on how in depth the goal may be, it can be tracked weekly, monthly, quarterly or even annually. What good are goals, however, if you’re not able to easily track them? By partnering with the expertise of TrustMAPP, your company can accurately and efficiently assess and manage the progress of your cyber security goals through our security enhancing dashboard.
