While it has problems as a measure of actual risk, the matrix can be quite effective as a targeted opinion poll. It allows security subject matter experts to prototype quickly what they believe to be their biggest security problems. You see this type of assessment used all the time in the media, when experts are brought in to clarify and provide opinion on current affairs and events. These individuals have knowledge and experience that should make them more suitable to comment on the topics under consideration than just anyone off the street.

The result is that most organizations have no data to rely on other than what they collect and no real way to compare their data with anyone else’s data. The most common question I am asked by clients from a security perspective is how well they stack up compared to their competitors and other companies; I am always forced to admit that I cannot provide a satisfactory answer. Of course, there have been efforts to share security data, with efforts ranging from high-level surveys and studies such as the Computer Security Institute’s annual CSI Computer Crime and Security Survey and a host of studies by vendors and market analysis firms.

As your initial metrics efforts gel into a formal process and that process becomes an ongoing program, you should be mindful of what you are hoping to accomplish at the next stage of the game. As we begin exploring some basic techniques for developing metrics and then more sophisticated tools and methods for analyzing the data that you get, start thinking about what you want to know about your security. Chances are, there’s a metric for that. But you may not be able to get to all your security metrics goals immediately.
