OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2014) - As organizations determine how best to invest in network security, there is strong debate surrounding meaningful metrics. Understanding and implementation of actionable metrics, coupled with the ability to communicate those metrics to key audiences in the organization, can help improve both efficiency and effectiveness.

To help large enterprises and government agencies determine how best to use network security metrics, FireMon, the leading provider of risk and policy management solutions, and Securosis, a leading information security research and advisory firm, are delivering a webcast titled "Network Security Metrics - Which Matter, Which Can You Measure?"

During the webcast, Mike Rothman, Analyst and President at Securosis, will join Jody Brazil, President and CTO of FireMon, in a discussion that will provide insight into, and best practices for, improving network security posture through security metrics.

Key themes covered in this session include:

  • An effective metrics program defines the right metrics to the right audience

  • Operational metrics should focus on reducing attack surface risk and improving efficiency
  • A metrics program requires prioritization, commitment and automation
