Suite of Assessments Provides Comprehensive View of Security

March 30, 2023 – The Security Executive Council’s suite of corporate security-specific assessments helps security leaders identify the function’s current state, pinpoint gaps, identify options, and communicate the way forward to executive management.

The SEC has worked with practitioners in many industries, combining the Collective Knowledge™ of successful former security executives with Security Leadership Research Institute (SLRI) research to develop many assessments for different facets of the security function. This suite, the Five Tools for Security Success, takes security leaders from high-level review to deep-dive analysis to provide a comprehensive view of the state of security.

The Five Tools for Success includes the following:
  • Security Success Universe Assessment
    • Identifies gaps and weaknesses
    • Aligns with executives on concept of security
  • Maturity Assessment
    • Establishes baseline status
    • Measures service level
  • Program Comprehensiveness Review
    • Defines program magnitude
    • Determines options for incremental improvement
  • Quality and Performance Review
    • Establishes quality controls and performance measurements
    • Ties performance to quality and cost
  • Internal Value Analysis
    • Establishes value vs investment
    • Tracks expenditures by customer and risk
