CIS Controls Version 8

New v8 Release Coming Spring 2021


The update to the CIS Controls focuses on:

  • Including modern technologies
  • Defining Implementation Groups (IG) so that organizations can implement a prioritized set of Safeguards, or Sub-Controls, based on risk exposure and resources
  • Being consistent, simplified, and measurable by ensuring one ask per Safeguard
  • Including a task-based focus regardless of who’s executing the Control
