The Cybersecurity Poverty Index is the result of an annual maturity self-assessment completed by organizations of all sizes, industries, and geographies across the globe. The assessment was created using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). The 2015 assessment was completed by more than 400 security professionals across 61 countries.
Our goal in creating and conducting this global research initiative is two-fold. First, we want to provide a measure of the risk management and information security capabilities of the global population. As an industry leader and authority, we are often asked “why do damaging security incidents continue to occur?” We believe that a fundamental gap in capability is a major contributor, and hope that this research can illuminate and quantify that gap. Second, we wish to give organizations a way to benchmark their capabilities against peers and provide a globally recognized practical standard, with an eye towards identifying areas for improvement.
