The Cybergovernance Maturity Oversight Model, CMOM ("SEE-mom") is the blend of two seminal cybersecurity frameworks:
- Cybersecurity Framework (National Institute of Standards & Technology - NIST)
- Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model - C2M2
Individually, each of these represents the expertise of researchers and scientists devoted to protecting the nation’s most critical assets. Combined, they provide a robust tool for revealing organizational behaviors that contribute to cybersecurity maturity (or lack thereof). Even with a broad-level analysis, Cybernance is able to provide fine-grained recommendations for action that will improve an organization’s awareness, engagement, and maturity with regard to cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity isn’t about technology – it’s about the people using technology. Cybernance takes the established principles of NIST and DoE and uses them to identify the people who are in charge of the processes. In doing so, an organization can discover the nature of collaborative structures that are contributing to security and can act to improve them where they might be deficient.
This model is not about prescriptive technology solutions. This model is about identifying workforce discontinuities and building collaborative bridges between them.
One of the greatest benefits of Cybernance is how the model promotes and empowers an environment where the varied stakeholders can gain a common understanding of their role and investment in cybersecurity risk management. Read more about how Cybernance can benefit your organization.
