Video: How to measure the effectiveness of your cyber defenses

Watch here:

Measuring the effectiveness of cyber security solutions is a difficult task – individual products may tell you how many pieces of malware have been quarantined or how many vulnerabilities have been patched but that doesn’t really tell us how well protected an organisation is.

It gets even trickier when you try to assess how the entire cyber security operation is performing – including training, processes and technology – and contributing to keeping cyber risk at a level your business can accept.

Many companies find themselves relying on one blunt metric – have I been breached yet? If the answer is no, it’s tough to build a business case for investing in further cyber security measures. If the answer is yes, the floodgates will probably open and purchase orders will be signed off in record time.

The problem is that neither scenario is particularly useful in identifying, managing and measuring cyber risk over time.

Watch our latest video to find out the three step process norm. uses to give its customers complete visibility into the effectiveness of their cyber security measures and enable them to improve their resiliency over time.

Appointing NormCyber as our virtual DPO has given Ferrero the best of both worlds – access to data protection experts who understand what we stand for as a business, without the hefty overheads usually associated with appointing an in-house DPO.

We were looking for a virtual DPO service that offered all of the benefits of a fully qualified data protection lawyer, without the overheads of an in-house hire. The DPaaS solution from norm. has been invaluable in helping us to ensure we respect the integrity of our customers’ personal information, while using it to continue to deliver differentiated products and services which support our growing customer base.

CSaaS allows me to step away from multi-vendor management as the Security Operations Centre coordinates all of the technology for me.

We were in the market for an independent Data Protection Officer service that was well versed with both UK and EU regulators. We’re thrilled to have acquired this service knowing that an expert is available 24/7.

The speed of your Data Protection Officer’s response was very impressive – it was far quicker than I would have expected even from an in-house DPO
