Cyber security Maturity Modelling

Helping you understand how well your
organisation is set up to manage cyber risk

Implement security to fit your business

It is not always feasible or necessary for organisations to be fully optimised in every
aspect of cyber security. The Maturity Model provides recommendations for
improving security to a level that appropriately addresses the risks you face.

What is Cyber Security Maturity Modelling?

What is Cyber Security Maturity Modelling?

The Cyber Security Maturity Model is designed to cover the many cyber security and compliance requirements of your business. It helps you fully understand your organisation’s current security position and where it needs to be, measured against your specific threat profile.

Because cyber threats vary from company to company, sector to sector, there can’t be a one size fits all approach. PGI’s cyber experts help you understand how established your current security measures are, how effectively they would address potential threats, and evaluate whether current maturity levels align with the business’s risk appetite, risk tolerance levels and external governance requirements. This will inform the level and priority of investment necessary to keep your data and reputation safe. We believe that there’s no point allocating excessive budget to something if it’s not required.

It is a valuable tool for ongoing measurement and provides a structure for communicating progress to the rest of the business.

How is cyber security maturity assessed?

Our experts have identified the 15 key business activities which influence the ability to protect an organisation against malign cyber threats. Our consultants undertake an onsite assessment to:


Review your current security measures against compliance requirements and best practice maturity benchmarks.


Understand the specific risks facing your organisation, which are dictated by the nature of the business and sector.


Evaluate how current maturity levels align with your threat profile and risk appetite and identify areas for improvement.

This assessment—which can take from three to 20 days depending on business size and complexity—includes a detailed report that will clearly show any additional steps needed to meet the maturity levels necessary to achieve your risk management threshold.

Understand your specific threat profile

Our consultants will work with you to understand the specific threats your organisation faces, including threat actors and motivations, and compliance requirements.

Invest only in what you need

The Maturity Model will provide direction for prioritising investment. The assessment will highlight which aspects of security require the allocation of resources, time and budget. And, equally, it will reveal the areas that are already mature, where current investment is sufficient.

Facilitate a common understanding of good
security across the business

Communication between the technical and non-technical parts of a business can sometimes result in confusion. Our Maturity Model enables all parts of the business to understand where security must be prioritised. From this, actions can be assigned to business functions or departments to improve or enhance security measures.


Don’t wait for a breach to identify areas for improvement

Don’t wait for a breach to identify areas for improvement

Many organisations only undertake a review of their cyber security capabilities if there is a need to do so—usually when a breach has already occurred. However, the inevitable ‘blue-light’ response environment can skew the balanced risk management judgements that the Maturity Model is designed to inform.

Importantly, the cost of a breach in the future—which can often run into the hundreds of thousands—far outweighs the cost of proactively assessing your level of cyber security maturity to reduce the likelihood of a breach.
