Create a stronger security culture within your organization
The security culture within your organization
Cyber security is a strategic enterprise risk that goes far beyond information technology. Uncontrolled, it can impact product integrity, the customer experience, investor confidence, operations, regulatory compliance, brand reputation and more.
The cyber security landscape and the associated threats is not a new thing –the speed of evolution is what is changing. The focus on cyber security is increasing rapidly due to many high profile and highly disruptive/damaging security breaches threatening financial and physical damage across critical national and corporate infrastructures.
It is also increasingly common for government buyers and large corporates to demand confidence in information management as a qualifier for lucrative contracts or partnerships. With the stakes so high, organizations must decide on their cyber risk appetite and how they will respond.
KPMG’s Cyber Maturity Assessment provides an in-depth review of an organization’s ability to protect its information assets and its preparedness against cyber threats.
We believe that it is unique in the market in that it looks beyond pure technical preparedness for cyber threats. It takes a rounded view of people, process and technology to enable clients to understand areas of vulnerability, to identify and priorities areas for remediation and to demonstrate both corporate and operational compliance, turning information risk to business advantage.
In developing the assessment, KPMG has combined international information security standards with global insight of best practice in risk management, cyber security, governance and people processes. The approach addresses six key dimensions at three levels of maturity that together provide an in-depth view of an organization’s cyber maturity.
