Build a stronger security culture and reduce human risk factors

Essential to every successful security culture programme is the capability to assess, build and improve security culture at every level within the organisation. This is why every CLTRe Toolkit administrator (regardless of which payment plan you’re subscribed to) is guaranteed access to CLTRe Improve. Based on how you score your security culture programme in the CISO assessment, CLTRe Improve makes recommendations (“action items”) on how you can build a stronger security culture and improve the overall security culture maturity level of your organisation.

Action Items

CLTRe Improve enables the administrator to evaluate his/her programme’s progress and makes helpful suggestions (recommended “action items”), based on the results of their own assessment, on how to create a better culture of security within their organisation. The useful hints and tips are automagically generated from the “CISO’s assessment” (accessed from CLTRe Discover).

An Infinite Resource

Every CLTRe Toolkit includes unlimited access to CLTRe Improve. Also, there is no limit on the number of times this assessment can be run, meaning that CLTRe Toolkit admins can evaluate their progress and review their action items as often as desired.

Indiscriminate of Maturity Level

CLTRe Improve uses your answers to create action items for you. Its suggestions help you to build a stronger security culture and improve the overall security culture maturity level of your organisation, regardless of whether your programme is still in development and underfunded or long-established and already budgeted for.

A Proven Process

Based on the proven process of the Security Culture Framework, the action items used and recommended by CLTRe Improve have helped over 600 organisations worldwide get more out of their programme. The SCF was made free and open to all by its creator, Kai Roer, (CLTRe co-founder) in 2012 and has since been made into an open-source community project which all are welcome to join and contribute to.
