Rapid7: Protection Level Agreements: A Guide to Effective Cybersecurity Planning

Published on

In the race to keep up with evolving operational infrastructures, a company’s cybersecurity approach can become fragmented. If security approaches continue to diverge across a single organization, operational costs throughout departments could rise unchecked.

Documenting and launching clear Protection Level Agreements (PLAs) for security operations – and the way they relate to other business units – can yield benefits that will help your organization better secure the future:

  • Reduce security risks: Decrease cycle times and resolve risks faster.
  • Facilitate communication: Set interdepartmental business expectations with transparent PLAs that act as references for top priorities.
  • Define Key Performance Indicators (KPIs): Specify operational criteria – also known as KPIs – against which you’ll build PLAs and raise cybersecurity awareness.
