The CMMI Institute today announced an updated Cybermaturity Platform, a comprehensive enterprise cybersecurity capability and risk assessment solution. The updates are a part of CMMI Institutes regular cadence of updates and reflect the need for frameworks of best practices to continually adapt to new threats and to ensure it is consistent with the U.S. Commerce Departments National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework version 1.1, released spring 2018.
The updates include enhancements that address changes to the cybersecurity landscape, addition of one new category and ten new subcategories from the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) and a comprehensive set of cybersecurity best practices.
Todays updates showcase the importance of recognizing how quickly the threat landscape changes, said Kirk Botula, CMMI Institute CEO. With the pace of industry standard updates and the changing cyber threat landscape, we believe six-month cycles are a necessary cadence for incorporating best practice updates for building new cyber capabilities. Organizations look to CMMI to identify new and emerging best practices and build them into our framework in a timely fashion, so everyone benefits.
Updates to the CMMI Cybermaturity Platform, the only cloud-hosted cybersecurity maturity management application, are now available. As a cloud hosted solution, CMMIs platform enables its clients to quickly gain knowledge even with the latest threats, trends or relevant framework updates.
