THE CIS CRITICAL SECURITY CONTROLS FOR EFFECTIVE CYBER DEFFENSE
A LIST OF THE CONTROLS YOU NEED PLUS HOW TO IMPLEMENT THEM
The Center for Internet Security (CIS) has created a comprehensive security framework – the Critical Security Controls (CSC) for Effective Cyber Defense – that provides organizations with a prioritized, highly focused set of actions that are implementable, usable, scalable, and compliant with global industry & government security requirements.
According to CIS, organizations that apply just the first five CIS Controls can reduce their risk of cyberattack by around 85 percent.
In a world full of compliance, best practices and security advices, the CIS sets important milestones. These are important in order to explain and report risk indicators to the C-level and get budget buy-in.
