The Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model for Nations (CMM) is the flagship assessment tool of the Oceania Cyber Security Capacity Centre (OCSC) based in Melbourne. The CMM is a key contributor to improving cybersecurity maturity globally, with its positive tangible results and impact widely acknowledged.
A recent independent evaluation conducted in 2020 revealed that the participating nations found the CMM to be of the highest value. According to the authors, the CMM was “foundational to their strategy and policy development, contributing to greater collaboration within government and enabling networking and collaboration with business and the wider society.”
Since starting the CMM programme in 2018, the OCSC has conducted six CMM reviews within the Pacific Region with a further nine scheduled in 2020-2022, forming part of OCSC’s outreach plan. It is OCSC’s ambition to work with all countries in the region and welcome the opportunity to work with Australian and New Zealand governments in the future.
