Measuring System Security

Vast amounts of money have been directed toward cybersecurity solutions -- yet there is no theoretically proven method of deciding what those funds should be spent on, and no new paradigms have evolved to guide management decisions toward practical security solutions. 
This talk surveys the state of the art in system security engineering and suggests a paradigm shift in security metrics that may more effectively address decision-maker security concerns.
