The Center for Internet Security has released a new guide to help organizations address privacy concerns as they implement each of the 18 CIS Critical Security Controls, offering a new tool for integrating privacy protections and cybersecurity best practices.

CIS says the new “Privacy Companion Guide” addresses “some of the privacy implications of the CIS Controls and suggests mitigation approaches. Technical staff may not be aware of topics like regulatory requirements, data protection standards, requirements within partner agreements, and breach disclosure laws, which they need to prepare for reporting. There is no silver bullet to approaching privacy considerations as they are often complex and will vary by country, state, industry, customer type, and other factors.”.
