Baseline Cyber

Measure, track, and control cybersecurity ​
performance and overall threat exposure.​

Generic Baselines Are No Longer Enough​

The lack of standardization in cybersecurity metrics and benchmarks make it difficult to establish
a common baseline for KPIs. The dynamic nature of cybersecurity means that KPIs must be constantly
updated and adjusted to remain relevant. Different organizations may have varying definitions of what
constitutes a secure environment; and different business priorities and risk tolerance levels.
​​Aligning cyber KPIs with the overall business strategy requires defining, quantifying,
and updating those KPI’s. ​
