CIS and AWS Work Together

CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark

AWS joined the CIS community consensus process that created the CIS AWS Foundations Benchmark. The purpose of this CIS Benchmark is to provide prescriptive guidance about security configuration on AWS.

Security Automation & Orchestration (SAO)

CIS Benchmarks and CIS Hardened Images are part of the AWS SAO methodology. AWS SAO enables AWS customers to constrain, track, and publish continuous risk treatments, configurations, and assimilate DevOps routines into a “Type Accredited” secure AWS architecture. This architecture is configured to converge common security frameworks (e.g. FedRAMP, DoD CC SRG, PCI-DSS, IRS 1075, etc.) through the use of security as code practices. Learn More

What People are Saying:

"Based on the value, time and costs saving, I would not consider spinning up a AWS server without adding the CIS security to it for any production-level instance."
