In some kinds of more traditional businesses the finance department tends to swallow as much data as is thrown at it but only outputs small, measured and curated amounts of insights periodically: “Here’s revenue vs target in the last quarter”. These are undoubtedly essential for proper business management, But periodic reports also mean it can be too late for the business to respond. It’s like driving by looking only in the rear-view mirror. Looking at what’s behind isn’t going to let you spot a sudden bend in the road! Essentially, the highly competitive and evolved business environment of today requires businesses to have proactive, indicative business metrics. Combined with more traditional metrics, these mean businesses have invaluable and complete insight in order to evaluate performance. Proactive, indicative business metrics are found across most successful businesses–and especially amongst C-suite employees. These people know that the benefits are proven. Analytics-driven execu

As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats. Studies have shown that server-focused solutions such as network anti-virus, malware detection and website firewalls attract the biggest investments, ignoring the fact that misuse of privileged credentials is by far the most common cause of breaches. The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.
