by Jose Nazario, Dan Geer, Greg Rattray, Yurie Ito, Peter Cassidy, Aaron Martin,

Summary : One of the things we are missing in pursuing global cybersecurity goals is strong sources of data cross-comparable and robust enough to develop statistics to measure the risk levels nationally and globally.
Such metrics and risk measurement is essential for policy makers to evaluate the potential cybersecurity approaches. Measurement of global statistics and trends will also useful for the operations to prioritize challenges and manage limited resources. But more significantly the metrics can serve as a the common language between policy and technical operations.
Panelists will be discussing the existing metrics and new initiatives to look at this challenge and initiated efforts to create such metrics and measurement approaches.
