Practical Cybersecurity Risk and Control Maturity Assessments

Brian Fricke, CISO, Bank OZK

Learn about a new tool developed using the Critical Security Control (CSC) Framework’s 149 sub-controls that empowers an assessor to communicate with control owners to document how control objectives are being met within the organization. The tool goes further, asking four key measurement questions to establish the overall maturity for each control family. The output of the exercise provides an executive dashboard for reporting over all status, as well as a road map of what is needed to get to higher maturity levels. A secondary outcome is a dashboard of the overall risk posed in each control family, considering Inherent and Residual Risk.
