Great article
Emphasizes the need to make sure we are putting accurate data in these dashboards.  Otherwise, dashboards can do more harm that good.  Dashboards need to instill a sense of trust right from the get-go, or else the decision makers will ignore them.  If you can't measure it, you can't manage it.

Awesome!
Totally concur with the article.  Vulnerability does NOT equal risk!  Everyone loves pretty dashboards though and so that's what we are trying to produce.  Instead of the "three ring binder" fiasco of the C&A soon it will be the "the dashboard said I was green and I got pwned!"
