Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment Services

Cyber threats are constantly evolving, getting more sophisticated, powerful, and increasing in number. These threats from hackers mean that your business needs to be able to have a clear view of its cybersecurity maturity levels.

To provide your business with an overall view of your security maturity, Mindfire conducts a cybersecurity maturity assessment. This is a review of the maturity level and ability to protect sensitive data from malicious attacks. Mindfire evaluates your current security infrastructure by examining people, processes, and tools/technology.

The cybersecurity maturity results give your organisation insight to help develop future security strategies and help strengthen your current security maturity levels. Our security experts use cybersecurity capability maturity models and your current security maturity levels to develop a comprehensive improvement roadmap. This definitive plan helps your business optimize future security efforts and guide investment plans.


Mindfire’s security maturity assessment is key to your organisation and is essential for several reasons

  1. To test and evaluate gaps in your current security capabilities, giving you the opportunity to rectify them.
  2. To test and evaluate gaps in your current security capabilities, giving you the opportunity to rectify them. To examine existing and future threats within your cybersecurity landscape to ascertain the efficacy of your current security measures.

Stages of Security Maturity Assessment

Mindfire uses a cybersecurity capability maturity model to determine your security readiness. We look at each stage according to your organisation's people, processes and technology.


People: At this stage, your security activities and often understaffed and uncoordinated.

Process: During the initial stage, there is no formal security program or policy in place.

Technology: The organisation is at risk within the cyber threat landscape and might have experienced some security issues, yet no protection measures of control exist.


People: There is some cyber expertise and leadership, but no formal structures or communication methods exist.

Process: Some basic risk policies, processes and procedures have been developed.

Technology: Security tools and technologies have been developed and implemented to improve controls, but with limited documentation, there is still a level of maturity risk.


People: As your organisation’s cybersecurity structure becomes more established, you develop some set roles, responsibilities, and policies.

Process: The entire organisation has access to processes and policies, but there is no verification procedure to ensure they are followed.

Technology: More control measures have been implemented, and tools and documentation developed. However, there are no assigned cybersecurity roles and the business relies on the activities of one or a few individuals.


People: The security assessment roles and responsibilities are now clearly defined. The company has channelled resources to the department and there is a company-wide awareness of the need for cybersecurity.

Process: At this stage, there is a formal security department with standardised committees, as well as verification, implementation and analysis processes.

Technology: The security controls are monitored and checked for compliance but automation levels are still uneven and unreliable.


People: You have developed an organisational culture that fully understands and supports cybersecurity activities related to people, processes and technology.

Process: Infosec teams can comprehensively implement processes on a risk and quantitative basis.

Technology: There is efficient and effective automation of controls that are fully implemented and also undergo continuous improvement.

Benefits of Cybersecurity Posture and Maturity Assessment Services

By using cybersecurity maturity assessment tools, Mindfire’s security maturity services will provide some essential benefits to your organisation, including:

  • Understand gaps in your security processes
  • Aid in communication between infosec to management
  • Prioritise investments channelled to security measures
  • Maximise your returns on cybersecurity investments
  • Comply with regulations
  • Promote constant growth and improvement in your organisation's security environment


Mindfire uses a six-step process to perform a practical cyber maturity assessment, namely


We identify current gaps within your information risk management tools. We do this by identifying the repercussions of a threat incident on your organisation. We then strategise and develop methods of limiting the damage in the case of a successful malicious attack.


Mindfire helps you understand the scale of your security vulnerabilities and weaknesses. This will guide the types and levels of cybersecurity needed. Vulnerability assessments consist of four steps, mainly:

  • Identification
  • Analysis
  • Risk assessment
  • Remediation
  • authentication protocols,
  • data access controls,


As part of our cyber security maturity assessment services, we must prioritise cyber risks and threats. This is a crucial step as it helps your security team understand the impact each type of threat might have on your organisation.

A breach to steal data as part of an espionage scheme will have very different consequences to a ransomware attack that locks your servers and networks for a price. Some methods we use to prioritise cyber risks include:

  • Carrying out cyber risk assessments to evaluate the impact each one will have on your organisation and then defining mitigation strategies.
  • Creating threat scenarios of how each threat might materialise within your networks. This activity helps security experts understand the threat and create an effective mitigation plan.
  • Creating your organisation’s treat profile with information about potential cybercriminals and threat actions. We look at the sources of potential threats to your business and critical assets that they could target.


Comparing your organisation’s cybersecurity maturity posture against industry peers helps you gain insight into your performance. Mindfire will perform comparison exercises to quantify the posture of your cyber security solutions against that of your peers and competitors. We will help establish benchmarks for you to rank your systems against and cyber risk rating to help gather actionable and detailed information.


Our team must align your specific cybersecurity practices with your industry’s standards. These could range from HIPAA, NIST or PCI compliance.


During the cyber maturity assessments, we evaluate the level of your cyber maturity based on five stages – initial, developing, defined, managed and optimised.
