Layer 8 post: The meaning of metrics

Always accurate, insightful, and irreverent, there's another great post over on the Layer 8 blog, this time taking aim at the "security metrics" landscape.  "The meaning of metrics" has a great take on metrics, and really separates reality from navel-gazing.  It also provides some memorable quips and quotes.  I especially like:

"Keep applying the “so what?” criterion to your metrics."

and words to live by:

"Don’t be a metrics wanker."
