Key takeaways in this new report

1

Cyber security leaders and their teams need to go beyond technology-centric performance measures and correlate their metrics to business success. This will help overcome the lack of skilled resources and limited budgets facing many CISOs.

2

Using metrics to demonstrate the broader business value of cyber security initiatives is the surest path to securing an appropriate budget. Satisfying compliance requirements and stopping threats is not enough; becoming a business enabler is the secret.

3

CISOs need to cultivate leadership skills that emphasize communication and motivation. Inspiring your own team as well as all employees can help to minimize stress and burnout in the workplace.
