Obtain Actionable Insights from a Clear Information Security Management Platform.

How can CISOs report information security assessment results to executive stakeholders in a meaningful manner that elevates the discussion beyond bits and bytes? The answer lies in the robust profiling and reporting capabilities of the TrustMAPP™ platform. Unlike the spreadsheet "data dump" that follows many security assessments, the analytics engine instantly compiles responses into a scoring dashboard with clear priorities for improvement.


To each assessed business process, TrustMAPP's engine applies six dimensions of maturity:

  • Awareness and communication
  • Policies and procedures
  • Automation
  • Skills and Expertise
  • Responsibility and accountability
  • Goals and metrics

All six dimensions of each process are scored from 1 to 5, using the Carnegie Mellon Maturity Index (CMMI), showing a possible score versus actual score for each process and dimension.

Communicate information security in business terms

When aggregated across all of the organization’s security processes (and business locations), the maturity measures provide a unique security profile of your overall security status at both a process level and a program level. Gaps and threats are quickly identified, as is trending information over time as you work to mature your processes.

TrustMAPP isolates highest priorities and enables CISOs to bring specific risk and priority decisions before executives. If you’re called on to present to the board or senior team with a moment’s notice, TrustMAPP automatically compiles key metrics in just minutes. It’s compatible with major browsers and has large display features for easy clicking and viewing on all mobile devices.
