Manage security by facts, not fear!

Soapbox Security provides an integrated security metrics framework that gives you continuous insight into your information security and, in combination with business intelligence, allows you to execute an effective and efficient security program. This also enables you to manage your cybersecurity strategy based on facts and communicate cybersecurity in an unambiguous and understandable way at every level of your organization.

You have too many security tools, generating a deluge of data and offering no way to correlate output into meaningful information.

You might be at the beginning of setting up a security program, but can't see the forest for the trees! You don't know how to arrive at the right priority and strategy that you can explain and justify to your management.

Unlike other management disciplines where change, decision-making, and priorities are based on insight and facts, information security is often managed based on gut feel, fear, and anecdotal decision-making. Organizations lack the insight and knowledge to implement an effective and efficient security program.

Information security organizations, as an extension of ICT, are often on an island and lack the ability to effectively communicate, justify, or advocate the company's security strategy. In meetings with your management, "fear stories from other companies" are used to gain support or, at best, very simple metrics are used without any business context.

Your one-sided investments in technology, without a focus on your business processes, supply-chain and employees are not leading to the necessary improvement because not all links inside and outside your company are equally strong.

Lack of insight ultimately leads to not being able to demonstrate that your investments have led to actual improvements.

You want to start making decisions based on facts rather than gut feel.

You want to have the ability to drive your security program, organization and strategy, and to effectively communicate security across all levels of your organization. You want to understand the return on investments in the short and long term so you can make informed security decisions, and have the ability to recover quickly after an incident.

This Insight also gives you the ability to be better prepared for audits, demonstrate legal compliance and reduce the upfront costs of doing so.

You want to report regularly to executives and communicate about security based on facts in a language that is understood even outside your security department. You want to manage an optimized security program and address cybersecurity issues in line with your company's risk appetite.

You see insight as the means to make security a shared accountability within your organization and to achieve appropriate Information Security decision making.

Security Insight Service

Soapbox Security provides an integrated framework for security metrics to effectively report on your objectives and progress. It provides continuous insight into all relevant security aspects. When combined with your business intelligence, it enables you to run an effective and efficient security program that allows you to manage and optimize your security strategy based on facts.

The framework is fundamental to making information security part of your corporate culture and thus to get the (final) accountability of information security to the right level within your organization.

Insight ensures that you can manage and report the course of your information security in a responsible manner to all layers within your organisation, at board level or at the level of your senior management.



We provide our service through a number of steps to achieve the desired outcomes:

  • 1.

    We work with you to determine the best metrics to use to create insight, and the most effective method to report them.

  • 2.
    Analysis and initial assessment

    In order to arrive at correct measurements, there must be sufficient reliable information available. To map this out, we analyze the possibilities within your company. We also examine the effectiveness of existing reports and dashboards.

  • 3.
    Implementation and optimization

    We come up with a recommendation as to where improvements can be made within your organization. We can also guide you in implementing the framework in your existing reporting processes and management dashboards, or co-develop a new form for this.

  • 4.
    Communication and reporting

    We offer support in socializing and accepting the metrics within your organization. During the initial reporting we support you in the preparation.
