Maturity Assessment is a method to capture the perceived (current state) maturity level, which can be applied to a specific business line, program or to the organization as a whole. Maturity assessments indicate how an organization is performing at a given time by giving unique inputs and learning about the pain points, strengths, and gaps throughout the process. Maturity assessments can be a big contributor to the strategy of the organization in terms of resources, cost and time.

TPRM Maturity Assessments is a method to assess the current state of the program by evaluating the essential and key components of the TPRM program, analyzing the result of the evaluation to derive intelligent insights and to deduce the plan for a higher maturity level.

Defentrix classifies TPRM maturity level into four categories from Low (Initial) to High (Optimized).

Maturity Assessment is carried out against certain defined Key parameters that control and influence the TPRM program and associated activities. Information gathered for each of the parameters is put through the algorithm and the maturity level is determined. Parameters include but are not limited to Governance, Compliance, Identity and Access, Risk, Audit, Incident, Asset, Teams etc.
