New Security Measurement Index Designed to Show How Your Info Security Efforts Compare with Your Peers
Online resource behind benchmark survey promises to help companies measure the effectiveness of cybersecurity and share best practices
WASHINGTON, DC – MAY 11, 2016 – How well are you able to measure your cyber security efforts compared to those of your colleagues? That’s the question a new organization of security professionals hopes to answer through a collaborative website at www.securityBTN.org. Comprised of forward-thinking IT security professionals and businesses, Security by the Numbers has introduced its first benchmark survey called the Security Measurement Index (SMI). As a free online survey, the SMI allows participants to track and define how well one’s organization is measuring the effectiveness of its IT security—and compare their answers with other survey participants.
