PSR Updates - 31 October 2018

Following hot on the heels of the recent major update to the PSR, we have a few more updates for you including a new Capability Maturity Model and reporting template, together with a range of other guidance.


Capability Maturity Model (CMM) and annual assurance reporting

We are pleased to advise that the following new content has been developed and is now available:

  • New Capability Maturity Model
  • PSR Annual Assurance Reporting Template for 2018 -19
  • An excel spreadsheet to populate the CMM “Spider Diagram”

 These tools will enable you to:

  • Understand and select security maturity targets
  • Assess your current protective security capabilities
  • Identify security areas your need to improve
  • Form the basis of your security plan and roadmap
  • Provide assurance that you are progressing towards your targets.

Supply chain security

With ever more complex supply arrangements, supply chain security is of interest to many organisations.

To help guide your thinking we have developed a new section of guidance on supply chain security. This is based around 12 principles developed by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure in the UK and tailored to fit the New Zealand environment.
