What is CIS Compliance?
The Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls are a set of recommended cyber defense measures designed to protect your organization against hackers and cybercriminals. The CIS Controls prioritize low-effort, high-impact actions and tactics that will improve your cybersecurity posture immediately. (These controls were formerly known as the CIS Critical Security Controls– or CIS CSC. The version 8 update shortened the CIS CSC from 20 to 18 controls and changed the name simply to– CIS Controls.)
The CIS Controls are effective because they’ve been created based on some of the most common cyber attack patterns and trends. The standards were designed by a pool of experts from the National Security Administration (NSA) and some of the nation’s top cybersecurity forensic experts.
This makes the CIS Controls a dynamic, always-relevant framework as it’s constantly updated based on new and emerging threats.

How CIS Controls Add Value to Your Organization
Since the CIS Controls are an evolving framework, implementation will keep your cyber defenses up-to-date with the latest threats.
The Center for Internet Security Benchmarks are included in CIS requirements and will allow you to accurately assess your cybersecurity posture.
By implementing CIS requirements, you’ll ensure that access is restricted to authorized personnel only.
Keeping hackers at bay also means keeping your business out of the headlines. Protect your reputation with CIS Controls implementation.
From email and chat to enterprise messaging apps, adopting CIS Controls keeps all communications confidential and secure.
A key portion of CIS Controls implementation and adoption is training staff at all levels on basic cybersecurity best practices and cyber hygiene.
