CIS SecureSuite Controls Membership

The CIS Critical Security Controls (CIS Controls) provide prioritized actions to help drive an enterprise’s cybersecurity program. Consultants, Managed Service Providers (MSPs), and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) face a unique challenge: how to measure their own – and their customers’ – implementation of and compliance with the CIS Controls.

CIS is offering a new, cost-effective CIS SecureSuite Membership category that focuses on leveraging the CIS Controls to support the unique needs of MSPs, consultants, MSSPs, and their customers.

Member organizations may apply for CIS Controls accreditation offering the ability to provide CIS Controls implementation, auditing, and/or assessment with the assurance that they have met the consistent and rigorous standards of CREST certification.
