What We Do

Security Performance Management

TrustMAPP grew out of our experience delivering security performance assessments to our clients at Secure Digital Solutions, a professional services firm. We realized that what clients wanted was a continuous view of their cybersecurity maturity.

From that experience, we designed TrustMAPP to be a better way to assess security performance and maturity. It offers a standardized methodology, customizable assessments, and exceptional visibility into completion status.

TrustMAPP gives CISOs a real-time view of their cybersecurity performance. TrustMAPP tells you where you are, where you’re going, and what it will take to get there. From a single source of data, an organization’s security posture is visible based on stakeholder perspective: CISO, C-Suite, and Board. TrustMAPP gives organizations the ability to manage security as a business, quantifying and prioritizing remediation actions and costs.

TrustMAPP addresses the problem of expensive, disruptive, time-consuming, manual, and repetitive security program assessments by building an automated workflow, analysis and decision support platform.

This is not GRC, it’s a cybersecurity performance management tool that sits at the top of the strategy stack. The output is board-ready, on-demand visualizations that answer the key exec questions: Where are we now? Where are we heading and how fast? Do we have the resources needed to make it? 

That sounds like a mapmaker’s job to me. Cyber Cartography: Terrain. Trajectory. Trust.

Typical GRC tools are heavy and lack the ability to drive a reduction in friction for the teams that have to interface with it. Typical GRC provides for task oriented approach that drives a compliance agenda. They lack the ability to drive prioritization.

TrustMAPP, on the other hand, provides an integrated experience with multiple frameworks, to drive and manage the reduction in risk in business terms. All boards want to know a TCO of the investment they approved. TrustMAPP allows for a discussion around improvements and costs versus metrics that the board have a hard time digesting. Continual assessment is the proof for continual improvement.

Simply put TrustMAPP provides credible numbers and measurement of the security program in terms that the business can consume.

– CISO

TrustMAPP works at scale – at the level of business where a CISO and a board need to converse. TrustMAPP lives at the sweet spot of practicality and functionality. Rather than tracking minutiae, TrustMAPP gets to the heart of the program and speaks to real deficiencies.

TrustMAPP breaks down maturity by relevant categories, rolling those answers up into a summary perspective that is high-level enough to be digestible, but detailed level enough to be actionable.

And TrustMAPP does all of this with business cost in mind. Calculations and predictions for GRC tools are bloated, and usually require significant administrative overhead. They also most often are used to track specific small risks, and get lost in the minutiae.
