CIS Microsoft Azure Platform Foundations Benchmark
The CIS community and Microsoft partnered together to develop the CIS Azure Foundations Benchmark. This is the first ever set of security configuration best practices for Microsoft Azure. These industry-accepted best practices go beyond the high-level security guidance already available by providing Microsoft Azure customers with clear, step-by-step implementation and assessment procedures.
