Alliance for Performance Excellence and ISSA Offer Free Cyber Maturity Tool to ISSA Members

The Alliance for Performance Excellence is proud to announce its partnership with the Information Systems Security Association. “The Alliance is excited about our partnership with ISSA and bringing Baldrige-based practices and principles into organizations for more agility and continuous improvement,” states Liz Menzer, Chair of the Alliance for Performance Excellence.

As part of this partnership, the ISSA is promoting Baldrige-based principles for security maturity management. Andrea Hoy, ISSA International President, said, “In the past two years, the amount of attention data breach and malware has received has made cyber security and the existence of technology that can be used to control it more common than ever before. Yet critical data loss still occurs, because despite the technology implemented, there is still the inherent risk that comes from weak or non-existent security processes. The Alliance for Performance Excellence will help our members with principles and tools that can be used to build and test more resilient mature security operations. s. For nearly 30 years, the Baldrige for Performance Criteria has been the standard to reach in business for performance excellence, and I am honored that the Alliance for Performance Excellence has selected us as a partner.”
