Subject: Dashboards

Paper Abstract
“Dashboards, how we create insecurity trying to do security”

  • Dashboards are today very badly used, it is easy to perceive it in organizational audit or in CISO support mission.
  • Be “compliant”, protecting the company from financial losses by providing results to insurers and not protecting the company from attacks is the new way to do security.
  • Workers are constantly being asked for numbers. Those information are concatenated, absorbed, reconcatenated, etc … the more one goes up in the hierarchy.
  • In the end, security issues are totally drowned and other problems, which are more evident, are given priority in terms of processing.
  • I propose an analysis of the practices and issues as well as recommendations for a new and more secure governance with a methodology based on ITIL methodology an Iso27001 standards.
