Session I  - CIS controls and the CIS Benchmarks

Are you looking to improve your cybersecurity posture using the resources that CIS curates on behalf of the cybersecurity community? CIS provides material guidance to the community through its consensus based development of the CIS Controls and CIS Benchmarks. The CIS Controls are a set of prioritized safeguards that your organization would adopt in order to evolve your cyber defense program from basic cyber hygiene through to a mature, institutional level cyber defense. The CIS Benchmarks are consensus based guidance for the lowering of the attack surface for more than 140 different operating systems and software. With the CIS Benchmarks you will have access to instant subject matter expertise useful in deploying system hardening. As a compliment to these free tools and resources, CIS offers CIS SecureSuite that allows you to fully maximize the guidance that CIS provides. CIS SecureSuite has key resources available to you through Membership.
