Security Maturity Level Assessment

Security Maturity Level Assessment

Ransomware attacks, software vulnerabilities and large-scale data breaches are making headlines just about every day. Do you know how robust your defenses are? Or what steps you should take first to boost your organization’s cyber resilience?

From endpoint protection to user identity and account management, the world of modern-day cybersecurity technologies is complex. And when it comes to protecting your IT environment, every one of these aspects is important. This can make it especially challenging to figure out where to start. If you want to know which improvements will have the biggest impact, you need to begin by gaining in-depth knowledge of your current cybersecurity posture. That’s what our comprehensive security maturity level assessment provides.

Align your cybersecurity strategy with vendor-agnostic, industry-leading standards.

When you complete Vertikal6’s security maturity level assessment, not only do you gain a holistic understanding of how your organization’s security posture compares to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)’s Cybersecurity Framework, a set of best-practice guidelines for mitigating cyber risk that’s recognized across industries, but you’ll get custom-tailored recommendations to help you build a plan for boosting your cybersecurity maturity.

Every organization is different. No two companies have IT environments that are identical, business models that are carbon copies of one another, or employees who like to work in the exact same ways. Your cybersecurity maturity assessment will help you build a cybersecurity strategy that’s right-sized for your budget, your business goals and your individual risk levels.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework includes 5 Core Functions covering your entire technology ecosystem.
