Dashboards are a great way of presenting metrics but for the infosec professional you need to be careful that you arent just measuring meaningful compliance.

Good security controls can be measured but remember the steady-state run of security operations is NOT the same as the project change type metrics most people expect.

In 2015, 5.103 million babies were born in the European Union (EU), compared with 5.063 million in 2001 (the first year comparable statistics are available). Among Member States, France continued to record the highest number of births (799 700 in 2015), ahead of the United Kingdom (776 700), Germany (737 600), Italy (485 800), Spain (418 400) and Poland (369 300).

Incident response is an important aspect of any business' strategy - sadly it is often overlooked by the SME sector.

So far this year, two large US hospitals and Lincolnshire County Council have suffered major business impacts (outages, loss of revenue, ransom costs etc) as the result of ransomware attacks.

This is a shame as very basic security controls can stop ransomware dead in its tracks. Good IT Service Management and a robust IT Security policy will prevent 80%+ of attacks.

For the rest, have a realistic incident response plan and STICK TO IT. Dont panic.

Security doesn't have to be complicated, so dont fall for the fear around Ransomware and over-react. 

Just have good security controls....

Last week Lincolnshire County Council was hit by a ransomware attack which appears to have been enough to take almost all electronic systems offline for six days. 

This is a terrible example of cyber resilience and every organisation (no matter the size) should be prepared for trivial, script kiddie attacks like ransomware.

Cyber Essentials would have helped an awful lot here.

"All nations have a part to play in keeping our world safe for all people -- regardless of age, background, or belief. During National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, let us recognize the victims of trafficking, and let us resolve to build a future in which its perpetrators are brought to justice and no people are denied their inherent human rights of freedom and dignity."

There are three essential elements for any #infosec  team:
1) good internal team
2) good external consultants
3) good testers

If you get this in place, your security will go from strength to strength.
