What are the most important metrics to measure when building out your security program? One thing we learned on this episode is depending on your security program’s maturity, those metrics will always be different.


This episode of Defense in Depth is co-hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), the creator of CISO Series and Allan Alford (@AllanAlfordinTX), CISO at Mitel. Our guest is my co-host of the other show, Mike Johnson, CISO of Lyft.

Fluency’s correlation and risk scoring technology combined with their approach of using pseudonyms in place of certain PII data greatly facilitates your organization’s path towards compliance. Over time, machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms detect anomalies at an impressive level of scalability. Run Fluency as a standalone or integrate it into your existing SIEM.
