SOC-CMM was founded in 2017 to help security operations centers (SOC) measure and increase their maturity. Since its initial conception and release, the SOC-CMM has grown to become a global de facto standard for capability maturity assessment within SOCs.

At SOC-CMM, we strive to improve security operations globally, by providing tools and services that support SOCs in their maturity journey.

About the SOC-CMM model

The SOC-CMM model and tool were created as a Master's thesis research project for the master's program Master of Information Security, part of the Luleå University of Technology (LTU) educational catalog. The SOC-CMM was created using a Design Science Research approach in which a scientific approach is combined with practical testing and experiences to create a usable artifact, in this case the maturity assessment tool. The full text for the thesis can be obtained from the LTU publication portal.
