In this modern business environment, security has become an essential aspect to protect organizations from multiple vulnerable points. Security attacks have become common to disrupt the IT infrastructure, critical business services, and users. Threats from multiple vulnerable points have created confusion to the teams and made it a challenging task to detect. Moreover, manual process and cross-team handoffs have weakened the ability of security teams from responding to attacks immediately.
There is a desperate need to ask yourself whether your security is improving or getting worse? Without establishing security metrics it is a very challenging task to strengthen IT Infrastructure and improve response capability.
