With an increasing interest in cyber as a business function, it is vital that non-technical leaders are tuned into the cyber posture of their organization. Non-technical visualizations of data are in demand for these non-technical leaders to understand what’s happening in cyber. Cybersecurity dashboards aggregate and consolidate data into functional, presentable, easy-to-understand images that visualize cybersecurity posture in real-time.
Modular GRC tools and spreadsheets are inadequate when reporting cybersecurity KPIs since information is siloed across functions. By taking an integrated risk management approach to cybersecurity program management, leaders can see program data from a single pane of glass without the need to assemble program data across teams. A solution that integrates and acts as a single source of truth for cybersecurity program data enables teams to complete assessments faster while also automating much of the reporting process.
The CyberStrong Executive Dashboard enables Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) to gain real-time insight into their organization’s cybersecurity posture via integrated risk management. Data is aggregated and rolled up into a single platform without the hindrance of modules. This single-pane-of-glass saves managers time and provides a true sense of the organization's cybersecurity posture based on helpful information that anyone can understand.
In terms of visualization, elegant user experiences use color-coding, such as the traffic light protocol, to convey information as fast as possible.
This allows users to see where the program is weakest, varying levels of risk based on assessment, and displays where leaders could invest more. Furthermore, in the case of a cyber security risk dashboard, breaking the roll-up data down into the CIA triad, cyber risk by the business impact, and risk by threat type lends immediate, real-time visibility into the most significant risks to the organization from a high level. These can break down further into risk assessment reports that can guide risk mitigation activities.
In short, the Executive Dashboard is excellent for CISOs and executive leaders to get a sense of their organization’s cyber posture instantly using a traffic light protocol, seeing granular insight for interested non-technical stakeholders that want real-time updates, and quelling concerns about the state of security and seeing program activity from a high level to track progress to remediation and assessment.
