Cyber Security Maturity Benchmarking

Cyber Security Maturity (CSM) benchmarking helps organisations continuously evaluate internal security tools and processes as well as behaviours, events and evolving threats. This intelligence enables organisations to transform the quality and value of short, medium and long-term planning and decision making.

Organisations must continuously make prioritised, actionable cyber security decisions to improve business resilience, at the same time, adapting to emerging business objectives and the changing technology and evolving threat landscape.

Aegis benchmarking tool

Our CSM service, Aegis, is a benchmarking tool that CNS specialists use to work with you to measure and score your current Cyber Security Maturity against the five key domains and 73 sub-domains. 

This intelligence then provides the contextual, prioritised transformation plan for your organisation to reach its cyber security goals. Aegis’ CSM scale draws measurements from standards such as:

ISO 27001
Cyber Essentials Plus
PCI DSS
(SANS/CIS/CPNI) Top 20 Critical Controls Set
Sarbanes Oxley
SEC OCIE
NCSC HMG IA Maturity Model and Risk Management Principles
