CIS Benchmarks are the detailed configuration recommendations for strengthening specific systems, network devices and applications, and they exist for over 100+ IT products and systems. The benchmarks bolster overall security posture, help meet compliance requirements for other security and privacy frameworks (NIST, PCI DSS, HIPAA, etc.), and allow vendors to get CIS certification for their cybersecurity products. Regardless of need, CIS Benchmarks and CIS Controls are vital components to all cybersecurity strategies.
3 Steps To Gain & Maintain CIS Compliance
Achieving CIS compliance requries implementing the mandatory CIS Benchmark recommendations and any accompanying CIS Controls, for each of your applicable systems. Your compliance posture is given a score based on how well your configurations adhere to benchmark recommendations, and this score can be used to determine if changes need to be made to fill security gaps.
