The 2019 benchmark will be published soon.


In June 2018, CISO Lens conducted a benchmark among 41 of the top cyber security executives in Australia.

The benchmark enabled these cyber security executives to assess how their organisations’ practices and structures compared to their peers. A few were also going through their own cyber security transformation.

Our intention in publishing this report outside the set of responding organisations is to support decision making in Australian organisations that do not have a dedicated Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or Chief Security Officer (CSO).

If you do not have a dedicated, internal, experienced executive accountable for cyber security, then this report is for you.

The information provided in this report should be used as a point to challenge or validate against. The aggregated data comes from organisations that have allocated significant time and resources to identifying and managing their cyber risks.

When comparing your organisation against the data in this report, the gold is in understanding why there is a variation, because the goal is an informed decision. Use the data in this report to drive deeper conversations, both internally and externally, to help you assure yourself that your organisation is on track to a pragmatic and sustainable approach to managing cyber risks.
