Cybersecurity Maturity Evaluation Guide
A Guide for Organizations of All Sizes to Assess Their Cyber Defenses and Reduce Their Cyber Risks
Are your security controls effective? Are there critical gaps in your security fabric? This guide provides a methodology and four-tiered framework for assessing and advancing the maturity of your cyber risk management programs.
Level 1: Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP)
A prevention-first security strategy begins with endpoint protection. BlackBerry® Protect delivers AI-powered malware prevention with application and script control, memory protection, and device policy enforcement to stop threats before they execute.
Level 2: Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
AI-based EDR systems like BlackBerry® Optics use automated responses to reduce dwell time, contain infections, and collect data for root cause analysis. Outsourcing EDR to an MSSP can be a cost effective strategy for SMBs.
Level 3: Security Operations Center (SOC)
SOC analysts manage security controls, triage alerts, assess Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) and initiate Incident Response (IR) plans. SOCs require significant investments in infrastructure and staff, so this tier is mostly populated by enterprises
Level 4: Threat Hunting
Threat hunters search for IOCs of advanced persistent threats. Even the largest organizations struggle to find qualified staff due to the global shortage of security experts. Managed Detection and Response services like BlackBerry® Guard fill the gap.
