These myths can lead small businesses to make dangerous decisions about securing their data, leaving them open to attack. To deal with these common misconceptions in a small business, it is essential to know them first.

Myth 1: Small and medium business is too small and unimportant to be a target

How to Demonstrate Security Return on Investment

Showing investors and top managers your security return on investment is not an easy task. But for a CISO, Return on Investment (ROI) in cybersecurity is their Key Performance Indicator and is often among their Objectives and Key Results. A whole science of Cybersecurity Economics exists to deal with optimal security investment, but it goes far beyond what we could cover in a blog post. Instead, we will show how to demonstrate security investment efficiency in real life.

Why must you demonstrate the effectiveness of security investment? This one is simple: because otherwise, no one will be able to see it. Security is a tricky thing: unlike software features or business objectives, it is obscure. Investing in features and sales obviously pays off or does not, based on the investment’s effectiveness and many other factors.

The point of investing in security is less apparent. After all, the best thing that may happen if your security investment is effective is that nothing happens. Cybersecurity Economics teaches security managers how to identify and measure the prevented loss of security incidents. “Prevented” loss meaning that the loss never occurred because the CISO has made the right choice when investing company resources.

Science aside, what good indicators of effective cybersecurity investment show that you have put the money in the right place? We could name five.
