NextGen Performance Reporting
Of course, CorpSec’s failures are known immediately, like protesters invading a trade show, a pie in the CEO’s face at a press conference, or an active shooter rampaging unchecked across campus.
But if an org only sees its security department’s failures and not their successes, why would an org provide its CorpSec with an appropriate budget, headcount, or respect?
