Buy vs build: Continuous Controls Monitoring for Security Measurement

A key question arises: should a solution be built in-house or should the organisation invest in an automated metrics and measurement platform?

Measuring security requires the unification of data from myriad security, IT and business tools. Though there are certainly levels of maturity when it comes to producing security metrics, this can be an arduous and time-consuming process. It must be repeated daily, weekly, or monthly to deliver reports to stakeholders using further tools – data visualisation applications, BI tools or Excel.

In this document, we look at the advantages and disadvantages of buying a platform versus the advantages and disadvantages of building an in-house solution, then take a look at some of the key differences between the two.
