Secureworks launched its Secureworks Security Maturity Model.
The release is in response to “research which shows more than 37 percent of U.S. organizations face security risks that exceed their overall security maturity.
Within that group, 10 percent face a significant deficiency when it comes to protecting themselves from threats.
Secureworks will offer a complementary evaluation to help organizations benchmark their own security maturity.
The model incorporates elements of frameworks such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and ISO 27001/02. It comprises four levels: guarded, informed, integrated and resilient.
Further information, and a route map for attaining security maturity, can be found in a white paper titled “5 Critical Steps to a More Mature Security Posture.”
The process toward more mature security as outlined by Secureworks provides a valuable checklist of security processes.
Secureworks was founded in 1998 by Michael Pearson and Joan Wilbanks and acquired by Dell and became Dell Secureworks in 2011. It left Dell and became a public company in 2016.
