Abstract

As organizations are vulnerable to cyber attacks, their protection becomes a significant issue. Capability Maturity Models can enable organizations to benchmark current maturity levels against best practices. Although many maturity models have been already proposed in the literature, a need for models that integrate several regulations exists. This article presents a light web-based model that can be used as a cybersecurity assessment tool for Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) of the UK. The novel Holistic Cybersecurity Maturity Assessment Framework incorporates all security and privacy regulations and best practices that HEIs must be compliant to and can be used as a self-assessment or a cybersecurity audit tool.
