What is CIS Compliance?

The Center for Internet Security (CIS) Critical Security Controls (CSC) is a set of recommended cyberdefense measures designed to protect your organization against hackers and cyber-criminals. The CIS CSC prioritizes low effort, high impact actions and tactics that will improve your cybersecurity posture immediately.

The CIS CSC security controls are effective because they’ve been created based on some of the most common cyber-attack patterns and trends. The standards were created by a pool of experts from the National Security Administration (NSA) to some of the nation’s top cybersecurity forensic experts.

This makes CIS CSC a dynamic, always relevant framework as it’s constantly updated based on new and emerging threats.
