With the rise in cyber threats, your cloud infrastructure growing and devops demanding privileged access, you can no longer approach cloud security on the fly or opportunistically. Surprisingly, a recent study by Osterman Research found 84% of organizations do.


In this webinar, we will present the Ermetic Cloud Security Maturity Model, a lightweight framework developed for organizations to assess their maturity level and plan an actionable roadmap to incrementally improve on it. We will look at the key findings of the study, which surveyed over 300 companies and, using their real data, built an industry baseline against the maturity model.


In participating in this session you will:

  • Gain a solid understanding of the maturity model, its four levels, and how you can apply the model to your own organization
  • Learn how the surveyed companies performed including surprising gaps in perception and reality as revealed by the study
  • Find out which security practices, when prioritized, led to higher maturity levels, and other actions to build into a continuous maturity improvement program


The speaker is the architect of the Ermetic Cloud Security Maturity Model.
