Using Security Metrics to Drive Action in Asia Pacific was generously sponsored by Tenable.

As the challenge of securing digital assets grows, the challenge of quantifying an organization’s security posture is also growing. This is due in part to the added layers of protection needed to secure IT infrastructures that have no perimeter, and the sheer quantities of data generated by new security technologies. It is further complicated, especially for global companies, by regional differences in security practices, standards, and regulatory environments.

In order to better understand how security organizations operating in Europe and the Middle East use metrics to describe their security posture, we decided to ask them. With Tenable’s generous support, we posed this question to a number of security experts:

Your CEO calls and asks, “Just how secure are we?” What strategies and metrics do you use to answer that question?

For this eBook we spoke to a global audience, including security professionals from the Philippines, Australia, China and India. We found that everyone faces many of the same threats. However, different regulatory environments affect how companies think about and measure their security postures. One thing that is clearly evident from these essays is that security practices, and the metrics used to measure them, are changing, maturing, and adapting in response to a rapidly evolving risk landscape.

I believe this eBook offers valuable insights to any security executive, but especially for those operating exclusively or partially in the APAC region.
