Page added Dec 2021 Gary and Krag offer training in PRAGMATIC and associated methods (such as GQM) ranging from 1 to 5 days, depending on the students’ needs and hence the depth and breadth of coverage and learning required. Public courses (both classroom-based - COVID permitting - and online/virtual) are generally offered through training partners such as ALC Group.

For more targeted, in-depth assistance, we also offer bespoke consultancy support for organizations such as:

  • Custom in-house security metrics training courses.
  • Metrics workshops, along with risk and control workshops.
  • Briefings for senior managers, C-suites, board members, auditors and regulators on information risk and security management metrics, governance and peformance evaluation.
  • Guidance on formulating information security metrics/measurement strategies, policies, procedures and systems.
  • Metrics audits/reviews e.g. benchmarking entire organizations against others, or internal benchmarking comparisons between business units or departments.
  • PRAGMATIC evaluations of existing metrics suites, with advice on revising or replacing metrics to improve effectiveness.
  • Support to identify, specify, implement and use more appropriate metrics, particularly critical metrics concerning critical controls addressing the organization’s critical information risks.
  • Mentoring guidance for CISOs and other senor or middle managers developing, using and maintaining their own information/cybersecurity metrics.
  • Interim management of information or cyber-security functions (from simply holding the reins and assisting with the recruitment of permanent employees, to bootstrapping information security functions that need a boost).
  • Metrics guidance for other functions e.g. IT, finance, HR, operations ...
  • Related areas such as governance, [information] risk management, business continuity/resilience, compliance (e.g. ISO27k) and IT auditing.
