Transparent security risk is a clear business advantage. Security risk is a concept that links value with security threats. Traditionally security risk is treated by implementation of counter measures for pre-defined threats. This implies the knowledge of any future threat and up-front investments in security measures with unclear pay-off. Furthermore this approach limits usually collaboration. A security dashboard overcomes these deficits. It discovers effectively security risks by observing relevant security incidents and compiling them into one picture. This talk illustrates the difference between the two security approaches and lays down how to realize such a security dashboard.
