With Security Metrics, Every Picture Tells a Story

  • Don’t try to tell the whole story verbally. A data-rich trend graph can be much more compelling and convincing than
    any speech.

“Right away you get four follow up meeting invitations from the engineering managers: ‘Can you walk my teamthrough why we are red and how we can get to green?’”

Aanchal Gupta empathizes with C suite executives’ need to get to the point of any discussion. As chief information security officer (CISO) for Skype and Skype for Business, she appreciates terseness from her own team.
