Assessing Security with External Measurements
Assessing Security with External Measurements

Traditional approaches to managing cyber risk typically include use risk assessment questionnaires and audits. The results of these are often interpreted with cyber threat matrices to provide a rough, qualitative snapshot of risk. Such strategies are time consuming, expensive, and it is unclear how effective they are.
