Information Assurance Metrics: Practical Steps to Measurement

  • James Tarala
  • Friday, November 22nd, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Show up to a security presentation, walk away with a specific action plan. In this presentation, James Tarala, a senior instructor with the SANS Institute, will be presenting on making specific plans for information assurance metrics in an organization. Clearly this is an industry buzzword at the moment when you listen to presentations on the 20 Critical Controls, NIST guidance, or industry banter). Security professionals have to know that their executives are discussing the idea. So exactly how do you integrate information assurance metrics into action in an organization and actually achieve value from the effort. Learn what efforts are currently underway in the industry to create consensus metrics guides and what initial steps an organization can take to start measuring the effectiveness of their security program. Small steps are better than no steps, and by the end of this presentation, students will have a start integrating metrics into their information assurance program.
