CIS Releases New Data, Road Maps to Guide Cyber Upgrades

October 5, 2021


The nonprofit Center for Internet Security (CIS) announced new guidance for organizations trying to wring the most value out of their tight cybersecurity budgets.

Its recently released Community Defense Model (CDM) version 2.0 gives public and private entities a road map for upping their cyber postures that draws on research into the most pressing global cyber threats.

The CDM assesses how well the various cybersecurity practices and technologies that CIS recommends actually work at defending against common threats like ransomware and targeted intrusions. The goal of this is to help organizations decide which practices to prioritize adopting.
