Episode 77: Data's Value to Decision-Making in Cybersecurity

In episode 77 of Cybersecurity Where You Are, co-hosts Sean Atkinson and Tony Sager are joined by Roger Grimes, Data-Driven Defense Evangelist at KnowBe4. Together, they discuss how to use data to inform your decision-making in cybersecurity. They begin by discussing the cybersecurity industry's lack of maturity in its use of data. From there, they explore the risks of not using data to make cybersecurity decisions. In Tony's words, the cybersecurity industry doesn't have to accept "perfection is the enemy of the good" as its paradigm. When we understand the data with which we can work, we can frame the information in a way to strengthen the cybersecurity posture of our respective organizations.
