Calculating Return-on-Investment (ROI) When you’re considering making an IT or InfoSec procurement, how do you determine what your return on investment (ROI) or return on security investment (ROSI) will be? The problem is that the standard calculation to evaluate investments is based on expected cash flow, in the form of revenue earned or expenses avoided: ROI, Net Present Value (NPV), and Internal Rate of Return (IRR). The total cost of ownership is commonly used for IT investments but is exclusively based on fees by totaling the initial purchase price plus ongoing support.
Two common approaches are commonly used to help fulfill the requirement for protecting the security of an organization. Defense in depth describes the layered, redundant approach to cover a variety of attack vectors. Detection in depth describes the multiple detection points within an attack chain. In an effort to throw everything and the kitchen sink at the problems associated with cyber defense, InQuest has incorporated Detection in-depth methodologies alongside our intelligent orchestration in order to help Prevent, Detect, and Hunt the cyber-threats impacting our modern world.
