Metrics & Reporting — a Failure in Communication
Wisegate recently conducted a research initiative to assess the current state of security risks and controls in business today. One of the key takeaways? A concerning lack of metrics and reporting on the subject. While CISOs claim to be improving corporate security all the time, there is little ability to measure that success. In this Drill-Down report, Wisegate uncovers where most organizations stand when it comes to metrics and reporting, and how it is affecting their businesses on the whole.

WISEGATE MEMBER OF THE MONTH
DIRECT FROM THE MOUTH OF WISEGATE MEMBERS
We love hearing feedback on how Wisegate is helping IT professionals like you. Here's a story we heard recently about how an Expert 1:1 call, conversations with the fellow members on key IT challenges and issues, saved him time and money, and helped him reach a confident final decision:
WISEGATE MEMBER TO MEMBER CALL
A Wisgate member at a U.S. University was charged with defining the safeguards around the use of Box in his organization. The decision to use Box was made independent of input from the Information Security Office. Member Services connected him with a CISO at another university on a M2M call. This M2M call saved time in research and devising a strategy from weeks to just a few days. The member reported that the call allowed him to clarify his thoughts and get time and cost saving insights he otherwise would not have known about or received. The member reported to Wisegate Member Services: "[The M2M call] alone made my investment in Wisegate worth it." The call provided justification to get a Data Leak Prevention (DLP) solution implemented and validated the decision that no files with HIPAA data would get stored on Box until DLP was implemented and integrated with Box.
Wisegate connects peers, hosts virtual roundtables, and produces and analyzes customized research, surveys, and more, offering IT leaders the quickest path to answers and decisions.
