- Lisa Lee, an Information Security Professional
Every once in a while we get to read something that is so startlingly clear that we wonder why it took so long for somebody to write it. It isn't that we didn't know each step, it's we needed somebody to put the steps in order so we can get where we want to go. Caroline articulates where we want to go in a well thought out, logical, calculated and justifiable manner. Caroline provides the objective, justification and process for creating an exquisitely managed security metric program. She provides the justification for metrics, the approach to meaningful analysis, the process for defining and executing the project. The she demonstrates how to assure that management gets the right information at the right time.
My only problem with this book is that the title suggests that it's not for seasoned or experienced security professionals. This is not just a beginner's guide; rather it is a practical and well-thought out roadmap for implementing a security metric program. Caroline even provides templates and checklists to support such a program. With this book in hand security teams are well armed to comply with the maxim: you have to measure it in order to manage it.
I have had the luck to meet and hear Caroline Wong. When I read this book, I can hear Caroline's voice. It is true to her voice. Go search Caroline Wong on Youtube and then buy the book.
