The rapid growth in magnitude and complexity of Cyber-Security Information and Event Management (CSIEM) has ignited a trend toward security automation and information exchange standards. Making Security Measurable (MSM) references a collection of open community standards for the common enumeration, expression and reporting of cyber-security-related information. While MSM-related standards are valuable for enabling security automation; insufficient vocabulary management and data interoperability methods as well as domain complexity that exceeds current representation capabilities impedes the adoption of these important standards.
