Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment

Defining an organization’s maturity with respect to their cybersecurity program and related security controls has proven to be a pragmatic and effective approach to prioritize resources, funds, and address risk. By performing a maturity assessment, an organization can build a basis with recommendations for improvements, technology solution options, and define its future.

2NDGEAR’s Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment Approach

We gather the knowledge and insights to perform an effective cybersecurity maturity assessment through several meetings focused on core business, threat landscape, and controls mapping. Our preferred approach is to use NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) and to evaluate the subcategories and categories in the 5 functions defined by the framework. The framework is well understood, widely used, and provides an organization with reports and tools that will make it easy to compare past or future results.

Cyber Maturity Executive Summary

Outlines the overall state of cybersecurity maturity, strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for improvement. The summary includes:

  • Cyber Maturity Report that outlines assessment findings
  • Rating of the associated risk
  • Maturity Dashboard

Comparative Study / Benchmark Report

Provides insight into the level of maturity and risk awareness of the comparable organization’s information security programs.

Remediation Plan and Roadmap 

These establish the projects that comprise an organization’s cybersecurity strategy. Logical groupings of recommendations are prioritized based on risks (e.g. of inaction), costs, and resource availability.

Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment Overview

Regardless if an organization is large, medium, or small, any sized operation can benefit from a cybersecurity maturity assessment. Through an assessment, an organization can see its current security posture and develop a cybersecurity road map and implementation plan to strengthen its cybersecurity program and ensure it’s up to date with the most recent compliance standards and best practices.
