The metrics that quantify cybersecurity’s contributions to a business’ resiliency and growth matter most. CISOs and their teams who own dashboards and present them to senior management must clearly define how cybersecurity contributes to business goals. Identifying which metrics best quantify what value security delivers to a business is a valuable skill every CISO must continually strengthen. Data, not stories or anecdotes, are table stakes for measuring security’s value to a business.

What differentiates fast-track directors, VPs, and C-level executives progressing in their careers in cybersecurity is how they connect what they’re doing to deliver business value. They’re not relying on the hundreds of canned metrics that security tools can produce at the click of a mouse. Instead, they’re much more discerning in which metrics they produce and share. A strong focus is using metrics to improve endpoint security and showing it can deliver business value, for example.

CISOs who know how to manage and direct cybersecurity strategies to deliver business value and measurable results are increasingly invited to join their company’s board of directors. 

“I’m seeing more and more CISOs joining boards. I think this is a great opportunity for everyone here (at Fal.Con) to understand what impact they can have on a company. From a career perspective, it’s great to be part of that boardroom and help them on the journey. To keep business resilient and secure,” George Kurtz, cofounder and CEO, CrowdStrike, said during his keynote at CrowdStrike Fal.Con in September of this year.
