Hello Colleagues,

 

For those of you with an Information Security Function,  do you know of any good information security staffing metrics?  For example, 1 information security employee for 1000 FTEs, etc.  Also, if you have an Information Security function please let me know the name of your University and the number of current full time employees fully dedicated to Information Security.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Carlos

Hi Carlos, It's probably a good idea to first state what responsibilities are associated with Information Security. They vary widely depending upon institution and therefore the number of FTEs allocated may be a factor. For example do the Infosec guys just do IDS? Do they handle A/V, DLP, Identity Management, Log Aggregation, PCI, HIPAA, DMCA, etc. We have 3 FTE plus technical management for a userbase of 25000 (staff/faculty/students). We deal with all of the above mentioned topics and I can tell you 3 people is not nearly enough.
