Information Gathering -> Monitoring: Coverage and control metrics
Risk and Opportunity
Risk: The effectiveness of configuration, patch and vulnerability management is unknown.
Opportunity: Usage of Coverage- and control-metrics to show the effectiveness of the security program. Coverage is the degree in
which a specific security control for a specific target group is applied with all resources.
The control degree shows the actual application of security standards and security-guidelines. Examples are gathering information on anti-virus, anti-rootkits, patch management, server configuration and vulnerability management.
Dependencies: Visualized metrics
