Reporting is an essential part of every security program, for the following reasons:
- Security leaders need great reporting to understand whether their people, investments, and programs are delivering outcomes that properly improve their program.
- Security leaders also need to be able to communicate the value of their investments and performance to their executive leadership.
- Incident responders need to understand how quickly they are responding to and remediating threats affecting their environment.
- The teams responsible for purchasing Red Canary need to understand how much value is being provided and how we’re performing vs. expectations.
Red Canary’s reporting framework is focused on giving you actionable information that you can use as quickly as possible.
Since most security teams provide reporting via slide decks, Red Canary’s reports use the same format. Some teams will paste screenshots of these reports directly into their internal slide decks; others will use snippets of each report.
Each report includes an About this report section that describes the report and how it can be useful to security teams.
We always appreciate feedback on how your security team reports performance and security outcomes both internally and to your leadership, so please securely share those reports with us. Your feedback can help create new reports that make your team’s communication more efficient.
