CISOBox makes it easy to get critical incident-related stats and metrics.

Statistics and metrics regarding information security incidents can be extremely valuable to CISO’s and their teams. Trend information showing increases or decreases in the volume and types of incident over time can reveal rising risks and threats or demonstrate the effectiveness of investments to decrease them. Volume information can show the most prevalent incident types and help prioritize time and budgets for maximum impact – and justify priorities to leadership. 

The right incident reports can be highly beneficial for managing security posture and protecting information assets.

But many information security teams struggle to get accurate, helpful and timely reports. Often that’s because they are forced to use processes and tools that don’t lend themselves to repeatable cyber incident data collection and don’t provide for efficient, automated generation of reports based on that data. As a result, generating needed stats and metrics can take a tremendous amount of time – or not get done at all. Worse, all the manual data crunching can still yield poor results due to missing or inconsistent data.

Enter CISOBox.

CISOBox enables teams to repeatably and accurately collect comprehensive data regarding information security incidents. The product also provides push-button interfaces that can instantly create valuable reports at any time based on current data. Easy-data collection and automated report generation eliminate key barriers and deliver the timely, accurate reports needed by CISOs and their teams.

The bottom line: CISOBox makes it practical and easy to get the critical cyber incident-related stats and metrics teams need to effectively protect their organization.
