  • Receive suggestions for target goals and recommendations for next steps to improve your score.
  • Produce reports to effectively communicate needs for management and budgeting.
  • Coordinate evaluations of several departments within your utility to gain an overall view where appropriate.
  • Use the Platform to interact with the Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model (C2M2), by uploading a previous C2M2 to the Dashboard or by stepping up from the Scorecard to the next level within the C2M2.
  • Access the Scorecard Users’ Group to ask and answer questions with other users and network with other utility professionals that are engaged in improving their cybersecurity program.
