The RIMS Risk Maturity Model

What is the RIMS RMM?

The RIMS Risk Maturity Model (RMM) is a best-practice framework for enterprise risk management. Developed as an umbrella framework of the international, cross-industry standards, the RIMS RMM allows organizations to measure how well their risk management efforts align with these best practices. As a result, organizations are provided a maturity score and an actionable set of guidelines to improve their programs and gain the many benefits associated with maturity.
