A taxonomical approach for information security metrics development

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


How secure is a software product or a telecommunication network, or their fusion? In order to obtain evidence of the security performance (or level) of products or an organization, systematic approaches to measuring security are needed. In this study we survey the emerging security metrics approaches from the academic, governmental and industrial perspectives. We aim to bridge the gaps between business management, information security management and ICT product security practices. If common metrics approaches between different security disciplines can be found, this will advance our holistic understanding and capabilities, both in management and engineering practices. The survey presented here is structured according to an initial taxonomy for security metrics proposed in this study.
