Kelvin said, "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it." This presentation will serve as a stimulus to help us do just that— express cybersecurity in numbers—so that we can demonstrate that we know what we are talking about. We will explore some business drivers for cybersecurity metrics, as well as some old and new metrics that can help us tell the cybersecurity story. Metrics will be presented to help to demonstrate the effectiveness of a cybersecurity program, at all levels.

Outcomes: Learn the difference and impact of leading vs. trailing metrics * Identify value, community, operational, and advancement metrics for use on your campus * Obtain a framework and useful metrics for including in your own cybersecurity metrics program
