SANS Security Awareness Maturity Model

Measure Your Program Maturity

Established in 2011 through a coordinated effort by over 200 security awareness officers, the SANS Security Awareness Maturity Model® has become the industry standard which organizations use to not only benchmark the maturity of their program, but leverage as a strategic roadmap to both plan and communicate the impact of their program. What makes this model so powerful is that organizations can quickly determine why their program may not be having the impact they want, proven steps they can take to mature their program, and how to communicate the value of the program to their leadership.

The SANS Security Awareness Roadmap: Managing Your Human Risk eBook builds on the Maturity Model by defining each stage and describing the steps to achieve them. Both the Maturity Model and roadmap have been used by hundreds of organizations as a framework for building their program, ultimately enabling them to effectively manage their human risk.
