HP today announced new consulting services to help clients make rapid, data-driven decisions about the management information-security risk across their organisations.
The new HP Security Metrics Services offer a patent-pending methodology and framework to more clearly demonstrate the potential that a security incident might have on business objectives.
HP Security Metrics Services utilize an organisation’s existing sources of security data, set parameters that give stakeholders a clear alert when their business objectives are at risk, and enable them to determine their overall risk posture. When threats or incidents impact stakeholder objectives, users can quickly identify the source of the risk and make timely decisions to address the threat.
Most organisation’s today are not able to proactively address security risks before impacting their business. This is due to the lack of necessary visibility into key security data and alerts that can help organisations determine the level of potential risk to their business.
In spite of this, a recent survey conducted by the Ponemon Institute found that 75 percent of respondents indicated that metrics are “important” or “very important” to a risk-based security program.
