TrustMAPP released its second annual Cybersecurity Performance Management Report that highlights cybersecurity maturity trends, areas of top performance, and areas of concern. Its aim is to support security professionals in accurately measuring and reporting the efficacy of their security programs and provide a benchmark for overall cybersecurity performance. The report features top industry analysis and anonymized data collected by the TrustMAPP platform over the calendar year 2022.
The industry trends from the report showed an overall maturity score of 2.86 out of 5 maturity levels in 2022. This increase in overall cybersecurity maturity reflects a general performance increase of 13.9% from the prior year. Cybersecurity maturity performance is calculated using the TrustMAPP platform by aggregating maturity scores across multiple frameworks, and organizations of various sizes, and representing samples from over a dozen industries in the 2022 calendar year. The report also revealed the top 3 cybersecurity frameworks utilized in 2022 as the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF) V1.1, AICPA Trust Services Criteria (SOC 2®), and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 27001/2:2022.
“In the 2022 calendar year, organizations had a more notable increase in overall cybersecurity performance when compared to trends we saw in 2021,” Chad Boeckmann, CEO of TrustMAPP said. “Our team believes this is largely related to the normalization of hybrid workplace technologies and further standardization of cloud services.”News Source: Yahoo Finance
