Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.
—H. James Harrington
Every executive can relate to this—it gets lonely at the top. But not a lot of us think about how difficult it is to see all that is going on down below—the nitty-gritty of the business. Ever more challenging is synthesizing all that is going on within an organization and the industry and communicating the findings effectively to stakeholders.
To address this challenge we’ve released a new Risk Trends Dashboard for Incydr. Tailored for security leaders, this dashboard helps organizations understand their insider risk posture, review compliance with corporate data policies, give insights into the risk reduction trends over time, and offer definitive ways to measure the effectiveness of the risk management program at large.
Now, let’s break it down to why this is important for Insider Risk Management, and why you should care.
Incydr Risk Trends Dashboard Helps Security Leaders Measure and Report on Corporate Data Risk
Incydr’s Risk Trends Dashboard furnishes decision-makers with access to critical information about their corporate data security governance.
In our conversations with both the analyst community and our customers, we’ve heard key questions asked by security leaders still left unanswered. Some of the questions included:
- How risky is my organization when it comes to data exposure?
- Is our team demonstrating improvement?
- How can we evaluate our Insider Risk Management program performance?
- Are the resources spent on Incydr and this program paying off?
One of the last things a company wants to do is invest their limited time and resources on something that doesn’t make a measurable impact. Having a clear picture of where your data is going at a departmental level aids in making targeted policy changes and aligning your organization. Seeing data risk trends over time allows your organization to measure the effectiveness of your corporate Insider Risk Management program, what works and what doesn’t.
The value of that information is in its ability to align various teams across the business—having the right conversations with the right stakeholders and to be able to make informed decisions.
The Risk Trends Dashboard tells a story and helps your team learn and improve.
Understanding Incydr’s Dashboards: Which to use, when and by whom?
Within Incydr, live two dashboards tailored for two audiences who care about very specific objectives.
Unlike the Risk Trends dashboard which is meant for security leaders to make large scale changes, the Risk Exposure Dashboard was created for security analysts. It provides a company-wide view of suspicious file movement, sharing, and exfiltration activities. Use the dashboard to manage high-risk users and see all file exposure to people and places you don’t trust. This dashboard is designed to help analysts focus on the top priority, high-severity data risk events for a laser-focused response. This dashboard is a tactical overview of corporate data security events that need immediate attention, along with identifying any visibility gaps a security practitioner may have. When it comes to your company IP or customer data, you need to have the tools to identify its unsanctioned movement and respond immediately.
Respond confidently to data leaks before the damage is done
As a data protection tool, Incydr provides a comprehensive understanding of your data exposure and shows you which activities require security intervention. Let’s work together to help your company secure the collaboration culture.
