NZ Cyber Resilience Barometer

“Cyber resilience is a measure of how well an organisation can manage a cyber incident, while continuing to operate effectively.”

As organisations increasingly become technology enabled, the incidence and cost of cyber-crime related attacks continues to grow. Cyber-risk encompasses loss, disruption, or damage caused by failure in its information technology systems. The NZ Cyber Resilience Barometer uses the NIST Cybersecurity Framework comprising the functions of Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover; along with the 23 associated categories.

We want to ensure our customers and the wider New Zealand community are aware of and prepared for cyber-risks. Accordingly, the implementation of cyber controls can mitigate these risks and lead to an improved cyber-resilience.

Your contribution to the Barometer will be incorporated into the next quarterly report. There is no option to enter your personal information therefore your information is anonymous. If you would like to receive a tailored report to compare how your organisation is tracking against the Barometer, please get in touch.

Published Barometers


The NZ Cyber Resilience Barometer is published quarterly both on this webpage and within our Bulletin. Subscribe here.

The Barometer contains a summary of the latest trends in how New Zealand Organisations are preparing for a cyber incident. An incident may include a cyber attack, data or privacy breach, or similar. We’ll give you a summary of the five functions of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover), along with a deep dive into certain categories. We will also provide industry benchmarks where data is available.

Why do we publish this Barometer? Because we want to keep you up to date with the latest trends in how New Zealand organisations are preparing for the risk of a cyber incident,. That way, you can compare how your organisation is tracking against your peers and better prepare for cyber risks before they become problems.
