A rapid maturity assessment can help businesses enhance their cybersecurity measures by identifying security gaps and providing recommendations for improvement. These assessments are particularly valuable for organizations that have embraced zero trust security.

Unlike a cybersecurity audit, which focuses on compliance, a maturity assessment evaluates the overall maturity of a company’s cybersecurity model. It provides a 360-degree view of the company’s vulnerabilities and helps teams understand their current cybersecurity roadmap. The assessment also offers guidance on remediation based on industry-standard cybersecurity frameworks.

Zero trust is an incremental process, and as organizations progress, expert assessments can be a useful tool for evaluating security issues and working towards solutions. CDW’s rapid zero-trust maturity assessment measures an organization’s IT environment against CISA’s Zero Trust Maturity Model. The model includes five core pillars: identity, device, network/environment, application workload, and data.

In addition to identifying security gaps, a rapid assessment empowers companies to actively bolster their cybersecurity sooner, reducing the risk of data breaches and cyber risks. Three out of every four breaches involve human error, making zero trust security essential. These assessments can also help catch vulnerabilities that IT leaders may miss and demystify the complexity of zero trust adoption.
