Cyber security Capability Maturity Model (C2M2)
About Cyber Security Capability Maturity Model (C2M2)
The Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model (C2M2) is an assessment and improvement framework created by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to enhance the cybersecurity posture of energy sector organizations. It offers a comprehensive and organized approach to evaluating an organization’s cybersecurity capabilities in access control, configuration management, governance, incident response, and risk management.
The C2M2 framework comprises five maturity levels that progress from “Partial” to “Adaptive,” with each level building upon the previous one to enhance an organization’s cybersecurity capabilities. This framework provides a clear path for organizations to examine their cybersecurity capabilities, identify gaps and weaknesses, and establish a plan to improve their security posture.
The C2M2 framework is widely regarded as a leading practice for assessing and enhancing cybersecurity capabilities in the energy sector. Other sectors and organizations have also adopted the model as a tool to evaluate their cybersecurity maturity level. The C2M2 framework establishes a common vocabulary and standards for assessing and comparing cybersecurity capabilities across different organizations. This can encourage information sharing and cooperation among industry partners and government agencies.
Does your company need it?
Any organization that wants to assess and improve its cybersecurity capabilities can benefit from the C2M2 framework, regardless of its industry. The framework can help organizations of all sizes to evaluate their cybersecurity capabilities and identify areas for improvement.
