Fact: Since April, 1996, CompuCom’s legacy has been performing the ISMS Benchmark service for organizations of just about every size and vertical market across the globe, long before other providers.


CompuCom helps our Client assess its security requirements for confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, and risk tolerance; we provide recommendations and roadmaps to implement security controls that should adequately meet the Client's identified security requirements.


This service provides a high-level benchmark assessment to measure the maturity of the Client’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) processes, control objectives, and controls.


This particular service seeks to measure the maturity of the client's ISMS controls across seven different measurement points:

  1. Vision & Steering

  2. People

  3. Process

  4. Technology

  5. Culture

  6. Percentage of Control Implementation

  7. Quality & Effectiveness of the Security Control


The results of this service allows CompuCom and our client to identify where additional resources and help needs to be applied. In addition, we are able to measure the maturity and improvement of security controls over time, providing comparisons against other organizations by vertical industry, size, and geographic region. Clients are encouraged to have this service performed at least annually over a multiple year time period. Some of our clients have done this for more than a decade.


The benchmark data obtained can be used for strategic planning and to demonstrate continuous process improvement with other repeated assessments over time, as well as, demonstrate a return on the Client’s investments in information security.

CompuCom will utilize its knowledge capital, certified industry subject matter experts, experienced resources, and where possible, templates to help improve the ISMS process maturity and integration with other IT process areas.
