Not Pictured

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



Compliance and regulatory guidelines are often the drivers behind technology initiatives. Security issues have been especially affected. Is your company able to gather metrics on these programs? And perhaps more importantly can you see these metrics in a way that allows action? These are interesting questions, a recent survey by Frost and Sullivan indicated that 75% of the companies polled share their security reports with partners and others within the company. It seems to me that having a solid infrastructure and reporting methodology is required to insure accuracy.

Almost half of the executives polled, or 46%, have already begun using metrics to measure security value with about 43% planning to take action in the coming year.

Recently Intellitactics introduced the industry’s first security dashboard, Intellitactics SAM, featuring security assurance metrics. The dashboard provides decision makers with practical metrics to characterize and communicate security effectiveness. The metrics are designed to answer the question that executives ask everyday: “Are we secure, yet?”

I'm a fan of dashboard technology and I think the niche' Intellitactics has found could prove to be a very interesting one.
