Cloud Product and Service Benchmarks

CIS called upon its network of volunteers to expand the security guidance for the public cloud. This effort resulted in CIS Benchmarks specific to cloud service provider (CSP) products and services. CIS honed its resources and did not create a CIS Benchmark for every unique service. Instead, CIS followed the lead of the CSPs, and grouped services by CSP product. Each CSP offers dozens of products, grouping cloud services based on the function they provide.
