Meaningful Measurement: Feeding the Cyber FUD Monster - Phat Hobbit
Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) has become a staple in the cyber-attack measurement and reporting diet. Be it sensationalist and hyperbole-filled language, or the lack of any meaningful and consistent measurement methodology, the end result is the same: zero clarity concerning an already complex subject matter which serves to continue rather than counter the cyber-crime threat. The public discussion (via media reports) and business insight (through myriad methodologies of mis-measurement) need to be better framed if we as an industry are to truly confront the growing and increasingly expensive problem of cyber-crime. Who the criminals were is of less import than how they got in; compromise indicators are more valuable to other businesses than the financial cost to that particular victim. The measurement metric dial has moved too far towards attribution and needs to be reset to prevention and a business-based analysis of risk once more.
