"Learning from Information Security Maturity: A Textual Analysis"


The Building Security in Maturity Model V (BSIMM-V) is an industry-driven maturity model dedicated to software security, which specifies a set of activities designed to foster an improved security posture within the organization. This research explores the firm characteristics and approaches to information risk of the participating BSIMM-V firms, primarily through text mining techniques. The objective of this research is to determine if there are any significant associations or relationships between firm characteristics, the activities identified by the BSIMM –V model, and reported information security incidents.
