My team wanted to ensure that we had a clear way to paint a picture of the organizations exposure to risk—as well as describe the actions we had taken, month by month, in order to reduce that risk. But frankly, we werent very good. We could only use the tools we had available to us, and those tools didnt equip us with a sufficient ability to see, measure, and monitor our risk landscape. We could only do one thing really well: play the numbers game. In other words, we were really good at reporting on the sheer number of vulnerabilities we closed. Fast forward several years and I can see that little has changed. When I talk to companies prior to their joining the kenna security platform, i find that reporting on vulns closed—rather than taking a more strategic view of risk—is still the primary modus operandi.

Background, in order to stay at the forefront of the corporate reporting arena, the board asked the staff to research into the role that the board should play in this area. The staff established that there was general consensus among the various stakeholders (including regulators, policy-makers and investors) that companies should report on a broader range of factors beyond purely financial results.

High-level what-if scenarios became an executive function rather than an analyst working from executive instructions (less mistakes more insight). Giving the board team the competitive edge through real-time reports and understandable outputs was a very quick win.

The business challenge, as a company of greater than 100,000 employees and with a market capitalisation in excess of 10bn, the company operation reports and forecasts had a number of fundamental problems. They took monumental amounts of time to create. The underlying complexity of the inputs to the report were confusing and near impossible to comprehend. Minor changes to the reports were very difficult and time consuming. The report outputs were visually out-dated and stuck in the microsoft Excel time warp of the late 1990s. Delays in decisions meant that the the company missed out on vital opportunities to gain a competitive advantage.
