Chicago IAM user group Attendee
-I wanted to thank you for presenting; I’m not a security admin per se but I found it helpful – liked the list of metrics to track. The biggest thing, though, was your thought about asking your stakeholders what THEY want to hear from you…one of those things that seems obvious but wasn’t to me. I am going to use that idea for a group I give a monthly update to – will ask them what they want to know about at our next status.
