The community cyber security maturity model (CCSMM) defines four dimensions and five implementation mechanisms in describing the relative maturity of an organization or an SLTT's cybersecurity program. These are used in defining levels of maturity and the cybersecurity characteristics of an organization or SLTT at each level. In order to progress from one level to the next, a variety of activities should take place, and these are defined in terms of five different mechanisms. In between two levels are a variety of activities that should take place to help the entity to advance from one level to the next. These groups of activities describe four phases, each of which takes place between two levels. Thus, Phase 1 defines the activities that should occur for an entity to advance from Level 1 to Level 2.
