nCircle Doubles the Number of Free Scorecards Available in nCircle Benchmark
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
RSA (News - Alert) Booth 1023 - nCircle, the leader in information
risk and security performance management solutions, today announced
they have doubled the number of free scorecards in nCircle Benchmark.
nCircle Benchmark is the world's first security performance management
benchmarking service that enables organizations to use key metrics to
compare the performance of their entire IT security ecosystem against
their own goals and industry peers.
The effective use of security metrics as a measure of operational
processes is a cornerstone of information security programs. However,
even sophisticated security metrics programs have trouble communicating
the relative effectiveness of their efforts to key stakeholders because
there is no objective point of comparison.
nCircle Benchmark is the first service that transforms operational
security metrics into key performance indicators and Bellwether
Metrics that accurately communicate the effectiveness of security
risk management programs. Fact-based, consensus-driven key performance
indicators make it possible for CISOs and CIOs to effectively
communicate security performance against internal goals and industry
peers to stakeholders across the organization.
"We believe comparative benchmarks can play a role in IT security by
providing the basis for a general management discussion on the topic of
security, and begin to build the bridge between business and technical
issues," said John Katsaros, Principal, Internet Research Group. "In our
research we found nCircle to be the leading provider of industry
benchmarks and believe that its product line can serve as a good
beginning for this."
nCircle doubled the number of free scorecards and metrics available in
nCircle Benchmark in response to Benchmark Community demand, and to
encourage actionable and collaborative information sharing across the
security industry. The new, free scoreards are available across the
extensive nCircle Benchmark catalog, including:
"Security benchmarks are a relatively new discipline, but more
organizations are beginning to rely on peer comparisons to communicate
security performance effectively to their boards and executive teams,"
said Elizabeth Ireland, vice president of marketing at nCircle. "nCircle
Benchmark's ability to pinpoint security performance, set operational
goals and analyze security investment strategies has already proven to
be an invaluable asset to our vibrant benchmarking community."
