IOT SECURITY MATURITY MODEL: DESCRIPTION AND INTENDED USE
The goal of a Security Maturity Model (SMM) is to provide a path for Internet of Things (IoT)
providers to know where they need to be and how to invest in security mechanisms that meet
their requirements without over-investing in unnecessary security mechanisms. It seeks to help
organizations identify the appropriate approach for effective enhancement of these practices
where needed. Deciding where to focus limited security resources is a challenge for most organizations given the complexity of a constantly changing security landscape. As an informed understanding of the risks and threats an organization faces is the foundation of choosing and implementing appropriate security controls, the model provides a conceptual framework to organize the myriad considerations. The framework helps an organization decide what their security target state should be and what their current state is. Repeatedly comparing the target and current states identifies where further improvement can be made.
