Return on Security Investment - Measuring with Metrics 1 Day

In many organisations, executive decision-makers don't really care whether firewalls or sophisticated intrusion detection systems protect their company's servers and critical information assets. Rather, they want to know the impact security is having on the bottom line and before spending money on a product or service, they- want to know that the investment is financially justified.

In order to know how much, they should spend on security, they need to know:

1. How much is the lack of security costing the business?
2. What impact is lack of security having on productivity?
3. What impact would a catastrophic security breach have?
4. What are the most cost-effective solutions?
5. What impact will the solutions have on productivity?

Information security is no different -- it has to make business sense. What decision-makers need are security metrics that show how security expenditures impact the bottom line. There's no point in implementing a solution if its true cost is greater than the risk exposure.

This course presents a model for calculating the financial value of security expenditures, and will look at techniques for obtaining the data necessary to complete the model.
