Our Cyber Security Maturity Assessment (CSMA) enables organisations to manage these vulnerabilities, close the gaps and reduce risk very quickly.

Why you need to take action

Threats from all quarters are growing in complexity and volume, whilst the security-related legislative and regulatory burden is increasing.

These new standards and regulations mean many organisations now require that their partners and suppliers demonstrate that they have taken appropriate steps. GDPR in particular, has introduced large financial penalties for not applying appropriate protection to safeguard your and your customers’ personal data.

There is an increasing need for organisations to assess the maturity and effectiveness of their cyber security. This is driven by the significant impact of failing to understand and address risks. However, many risk related approaches encourage ‘box-ticking’ without addressing reality.

Managing the threat landscape successfully requires an agile response to constant, rapid change, whilst maintaining a solid, pragmatic cyber security regime. Establishing how an organisation meets these threats is best done by assessing maturity in respect to that regime. CGI’s CSMA methodology provides an established and methodical means to do so.

Our approach

CGI Cyber Security runs Risk Management ‘as a service’ and uses CSMA as one of the means to support this approach. CSMA focuses on critical systems and controls. It is based on the well-established UK Government Information Assurance Maturity Model (IAMM) but has been highly evolved to make it appropriate for use in any environment or sector.
