Cybersecurity Objectives

Partnered with the rapid technological developments that are partnered with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, is the increase in the number of successful cyber attacks against company servers. Therefore, it is essential to design and implement cybersecurity and information security best practices. Secondly, it is equally important to track and measure how successful the company’s cybersecurity and infosec efforts are.

  • Improve the level of preparedness metrics – The level of preparedness KPI measures the number of devices on the company network that is fully patched and up to date in order to avoid the risk of vulnerability exploits. This metric must be continually measured because cyber threats, as well as the associated preventative technologies and best practices, are continuously evolving.

View all

  • Improve the unidentified devices on internal networks metric – Unidentified mobile devices have the potential to cause untold harm because they can introduce malware and other cyber risks when their own devices are linked to the company network. Therefore, it is essential to install network intrusion detection systems to improve the organization’s network security and to reduce the number of unknown devices on the internal network. Improving the unidentified devices metric translates into reducing the number of unidentified devices on the company’s internal network.
  • Improve intrusion attempts metric – Intrusion detection is the method of monitoring and preventing the unauthorized intrusion of a network by a third party or bad actor. This metric measures the number of times a cyber threat actor (CTA) attempts to gain unauthorized access to the organization’s network. All CTAs (or bad actors) must be kept out of the network. Furthermore, the aim is to reduce the number of illegal intruders to zero and to keep it at zero.
  • Improve security incidents metric – The security incidents metric measures the number of times your company network has been breached by an intruder. This KPI must continually be measured as it is critical to protect your company’s sensitive data. Data laws have tightened, and companies can pay fines of up to 4% of the annual turnover if they deal with EU data. Additionally, compromised data leads to the loss of billions of private records, the loss of income, and the loss of the company’s reputation.
  • Improve Mean Time to Detect (MTTD) metrics – The Mean Time to Detect (MTTD) metric measures the length of time that security threats or Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) go unnoticed in a network. Indicators of Compromise are pieces of forensic data such as network traffic, system files, or system log entries that identify likely malicious activity on a network. Therefore, it is critical to measure how long it takes the cybersecurity team to become aware of IOCs as well as other cybersecurity threats.
  • Improve Mean Time to Resolve (MTTR) metrics – The Mean Time to Resolve (MTTR) metrics measure the average response time for the network team to respond to a cyber breach or attack once they are aware of it. The aim is to reduce this metric down to almost zero. Cybersecurity attacks will happen. That is a given. The aim is to implement a robust incident response plan that provides the means to deal with this cyber attack. This metric is also a useful measurement of your company’s incident response plan’s quality.
  • Improve Mean Time to Contain (MTTC) metric – The Mean Time to Contain metric measures the length of time it takes to close identified attack vectors from the time that the vector has been identified. The vector is the path or way the attacker gained unauthorized access to a computer network to exploit the system vulnerability, install malware, and launch cyber attacks. Thus, it is critical to close these vectors as soon as possible after they have been identified.
  • Improve first-party security ratings – Cybersecurity ratings are an objective, dynamic, and data-driven measurement of a company’s collective cybersecurity status for all hardware and software on the company’s network; thereby, making these ratings a valuable and objective cybersecurity performance indicator. The first-party ratings are the easiest way to indicate “cybersecurity readiness” to non-technical colleagues and management.
  • Improve average vendor security rating – Your organization’s threat landscape stretches beyond your borders. Therefore, your company’s security performance metrics must extend along with the threat landscape, including third-party vendor software and hardware that your company uses as part of its cybersecurity framework. Additionally, vendor risk management is an essential part of ensuring that your organization’s cyber risk profile is reduced. Consequently, measuring this rating and improving on it plays a fundamental part in increasing your organization’s security performance profile.
  • Improve the patching cadence metric – The process of the validation and enforcement of the regular patching of network endpoints, gateways, and servers is essential to the organization’s cybersecurity model. Cybercriminals use threat intelligence tools to exploit the time delay between the release and implementation of security patches. Therefore, it is essential to reduce the time delay between a patch being released and the practical application of the patch to the organization’s network.
  • Improve the access management metric – Access management determines the optimal number of system users with administrative privileges. Access control and the system of least privilege are a manageable and cost-effective methodology to reducing privilege escalation attacks. These are the exploitation of system errors, design flaws, vulnerabilities, configuration oversights, or access control that allows an unauthorized user to gain access to restricted resources. Therefore, increasing the possibility that cyber attackers will gain access to sensitive data and launch cyberattacks by installing malware.
  • Improve company versus peer performance metric – The company versus peer performance metric is the top metrical that applies to board-level reporting. Essentially, C-Suite managers and above want to know how your organization’s cybersecurity compares to industry peers. Therefore, this metric must be measured and improved upon to satisfy senior management.
  • Increase vendor patching cadence metric – The vendor patching cadence metric is an essential measurement because it measures the cybersecurity risk that your organization’s vendor has reported. Secondly, it measures how many of these critical vulnerabilities have patches and how many still need to be remediated.
  • Improve the meantime for vendors to respond to security incidents metric – A cybersecurity incident is defined as an attempted intrusion or breach of the organization’s network system. The intrusion does not have to be successful for it to be declared a security incident. The attempt signifies to vendors that your organization is a potential target. Therefore, they need to respond to this event and put additional protective measures in place. The longer the vendor takes to respond to an incident, the greater the chance that your organization will suffer from a third-party data breach.
  • Improve the “protect the enterprise” metric – The “protect the enterprise” cybersecurity metric measure to what extent the organization’s on-premise and cloud-based assets and infrastructure are protected from outside threats because of unauthorized devices and endpoints attached to the company network. The greater the number of unauthorized endpoints the lower this metric will be. Therefore, the aim is to reduce the number of external, unauthorized devices linked to the network to reduce the threat of a cybersecurity incident.
  • Improve the “optimize cybersecurity” metric – This metric aims to focus on low-value cybersecurity activities, increase the current efficiencies, and reinvest the available budget in emerging and innovative technologies designed to enhance and improve existing protective measures. The modern company is moving towards AI, data analytics, and automation processes to increase cybersecurity efficiencies. However, it is vital to ensure that misconfigured tools are not left undetected as they will open the door to a successful security breach.
  • Improve the enable growth metric – Successful cybersecurity implementations are now a key success factor for the business organization. This metric forms part of the digital transformations that most organizations are currently, and will be, implementing. In other words, cybersecurity is becoming and must become, an essential part of the organization’s corporate strategy as a measure of digital transformation success.
  • Improve the identity and access management metric – The identity and access management metric is designed to measure the time taken to deactivate user credentials, review the number of users will excessive permissions or entitlements, and monitor and review third-party vendor access. The percentage of employees with super-user or privileged access provides insight into whether too many individuals have unlimited network access. It is essential to restrict super-user access to those who absolutely need it.
  • Improve the configuration management metric – The configuration management metric determines the percentage of organizational servers and devices that are always compliant to the ever-hardening standards. The opposite of the persistent configuration management is configuration drift, and this is a risk as IT environments can undergo rapid changes daily, making it difficult for IT managers and staff to keep up with the continual device and server requirements.
  • Increase the security awareness metric – Increasing security awareness amongst all company employees is an essential part of the successful company-wide business model. If staff do not understand the need to implement cybersecurity best practices, the organization runs the risk of cyber breaches and attacks from inside the network and firewalls as staff unwittingly connect devices to the network without checking whether they are malware-free. This metric is measured by calculating the number of successful training events held for staff as well as the results of phishing and other social engineering tests on employees.
  • Improve the security incidents metric – The security incidents metric measures the number of attempted and actual security incidents that have occurred within a specific time frame. The higher the number of incidents, the poorer the implementation of cybersecurity best practices as well as the timeous application of third-party vendor patches. The ideal scenario is to improve this metric by reducing the number of incidents to zero.
  • Improve the compliance metric – As the number and severity of cyberattacks increases, industry-standard cybersecurity compliance requirements change. Therefore, employees tasked with ensuring cybersecurity compliance must ensure that, not only do they keep the organization’s networks up to date with the latest compliance regulations, but that they stay ahead of these continually evolving requirements. The improve compliance metric measures the extent to which the organization’s network security remains compliant with the latest industry best-practices.
  • Improve the data leak prevention metric – The data leak prevention metric is designed to measure the number of devices, endpoints, databases, and file shares with sensitive data and no cybersecurity controls. In other words, they are vulnerable to data theft. Therefore, these objects must be identified, and their vulnerabilities patched to ensure that there is no chance of the theft of sensitive data.
  • Improve the vulnerability and patching metric – The vulnerability and patching metric is designed to measure the extent to which third-party vendor cybersecurity software is kept up to date by installing released patches to reduce vulnerabilities. On the other hand, if this software is not patched in time, the risk of cyber intrusions and attempted attacks grows exponential. Therefore, it is vital to ensure that patches are applied as soon as they are released.

The project-based, real-time measurement of IT Key Performance Indicators allows management to track trends and ensure that projects are completed successfully and on time.

The KPI measurement for the IT department includes the following core competencies: the application of the software development lifecycle, systems architecture design and implementation, implementing cybersecurity best practice methodologies, procurement management, network administration, systems administration, user support, and database design and implementation.

Because the scope of the IT department is large, the size of the organization dictates the size of the IT department. This fact determines which IT functions are managed in-house or via a third-party.
