In the security marketplace, we often hear people describing money as the solution to all of their problems. If they could buy the latest and greatest technology and have more trained experts, we could stop the most sophisticated cyber threats—right? Wrong.
Time and time again, we read about companies with impressive technologies and trained staff experiencing significant operational challenges and massive data breaches. Simply throwing money at a threat does not result in automatic security. One common reason for this gap is that sometimes companies don’t analyze metrics and evaluate how to measure their cybersecurity success.
In operational environments, metrics are often ignored because operations center activities are looked on as things to be done and not measured. This often continues until something bad happens, which is a common security error—reacting reactively versus proactively. People don’t typically install an alarm system until there has been a break in, and they don’t analyze their cybersecurity until there has been a data breach.
If you look into security companies and their large claims, you’ll understand the difficulty in finding the right solutions. And given the never-ending newsreel of data breaches, no organization can just buy their way out of a situation. Companies looking to protect themselves from cybersecurity threats can be like an old bicycle. Sometimes buying high-performance parts would slow down the bike. Why? Because all of the parts news to be tuned and optimized to work together. In cybersecurity, if you’ve integrated an improperly configured technology, you’ve invested a lot of money in creating a less secure environment.
