Colin O’Connor, COO, ReliaQuest

In trying economic times, it’s more important than ever to be able to measure and communicate the effectiveness of one’s cybersecurity program. Colin O’Connor, COO of ReliaQuest, offers a new alternative to traditional metrics.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, O’Connor discusses:

  • Why measuring cybersecurity is so hard;
  • How traditional metrics fail to translate;
  • New ways to look at visibility, metrics and context.

O’Connor is the Chief Operating Officer for ReliaQuest, one of the fastest-growing companies in the global cybersecurity industry. Over the past 11 years with ReliaQuest, he has played a key role in nearly every area of the company, helping to architect and enhance ReliaQuest’s solutions for its customer base of Fortune 1000 companies.
