The InfoSec training is taught by leading international security expert, Krag Brotby, and based on the newly published book by Auerbach (co-authored by Krag Brotby and Gary Hinson) titled PRAGMATIC Security Metrics. This intensive training provides a hands-on practical approach to developing, testing, and operating a set of metrics that actually support the business, providing management with the information needed to make crucial decisions on risk, security, control, assurance and governance.

“The PRAGMATIC approach offers a consistent practical methodology for the selection and implementation of effective security metrics able to demonstrate information security performance and outcomes at the strategic, tactical and operational levels.” said expert security practitioner, trainer and co-author, Krag Brotby.

While there are literally thousands of things that can be measured, the PRAGMATIC approach allows selection of the relatively few that are truly effective and provide a sound basis for making operational, management and strategic security decisions. Real-time, accurate and reliable metrics are essential. The InfoSec PRAGMATIC Metrics Boot Camp covers what is needed and attendees learn how to achieve it.
