The only constant in the modern cybersecurity landscape is the inevitability of change.

Digital transformation continues to drive the migration of enterprise computing to the cloud. Furthering this trend’s momentum is the rapid adoption of hybrid and remote-work models that are fundamentally incompatible with legacy on-premises IT networks. 

As enterprise technology ecosystems swell to incorporate more and more devices and solutions, their structures are becoming increasingly complicated.

As a result, security teams are stretched thin. 

To add to the complexity, there are more than 3,500 cybersecurity vendors in the market today, and the average enterprise maintains 45 security solutions and technologies — at the same time. This makes choosing technologies increasingly difficult and, once they’re in place, keeping up with the incessant stream of alerts they generate nearly impossible.

In the midst of these challenges, it’s unsurprising that breach numbers continue to climb. 

To manage today’s mounting risks, security programs cannot afford to simply maintain the status quo. Instead, ongoing improvement is essential. Security operations must evolve if companies’ defenses are to continue to offer real protection.

But how can an organization be confident that it is, indeed, developing and improving its cybersecurity?

This is where assessing and monitoring your cybersecurity maturity comes into play.
