Cybersecurity is essential to online privacy, but too often the two are placed into conflict with one another. The CIS Controls, a prioritized list of essential actions an organization can take to protect their networks, has emerged as a leading cybersecurity approach. To date, the CIS Controls have been downloaded more than 75,000 times. They are available as a free download at
