In higher education and mbo, the NBA Maturity Model for Information Security is used as the basis for the assessment framework for the information security benchmark.

Getting started with the Information Security Assessment Framework

The Information Security Assessment Framework master class will help you make the transition to this new assessment framework, and is also interesting for FGs, privacy officers and auditors. Under the guidance of expert Ludo Cuijpers, you get to work hands-on with the statements from the NBA assessment framework. There is plenty of room to exchange experiences and discuss good practices with each other. In addition, inspiring keynotes and in-depth sessions are scheduled by various experts. In between, there will be plenty of opportunity for informal contact.


During the four sessions, we will discuss all fifteen domains of the NBA model. Below is the outline of the programme.
