What differentiates successful security operations?

We have been fortunate to partner with customers who have built successful security operations programs and teams. These groups have recruited highly skilled professionals and demonstrate value for their organizations. They navigate common security challenges – as well as challenges distinct to specific organizations or industries.

But not all security teams have been able to implement and sustain successful security operations. And many teams struggle with common challenges – despite employing bright, energetic, talented professionals.

Our partners at LifeRaft, Regroup, and Constant Technologies have made similar observations. This prompted us to ask “why?”  

To better understand what differentiates successful security operations, we are conducting the 2022 Security Operations Benchmark Study.

We are examining issues such as:

  • Which attributes are most highly correlated with success in achieving strategic objectives and operational objectives?
  • Which challenges are most persistent, and which have been most effectively mitigated?
  • What, if any are the most common measurements used for security operations ROI?
  • Examining crisis response vs. proactive risk mitigation, where are security operations teams today and where do they desire to be in two years?

These are but a few of the topics we are examining in our benchmark study. Our goal is to identify and exchange the best practices of successful security operations so that all security operations teams can identify strategies that help optimize performance.

We invite you to take part in the study to share your experience and understand how your program compares to those of your peers. It will take roughly 15 minutes of your time.

In exchange for your participation, we will send you a full copy of the report along with a confidential summary of your responses so you can benchmark your program.

We will conclude the study on Jan. 31, 2022 and then begin our analysis. We invite you to take part and share your voice. Please participate here:
