Going to Collision 2022? CIS Will See You There!

Networking with peers and learning from industry experts are two reasons professionals attend conferences. At the Center for Internet Security (CIS), we tend to agree. But to us, it's also about supporting our mission of creating confidence in the connected world.

That's why CIS is excited to sponsor Collision 2022, a large tech conference which takes place at the Enercare Centre in Toronto, Canada on June 20-23.

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the expert sessions and panel discussions of more than 20 content tracks, with ample opportunities to network with thousands of others who'll attend the event. But that's not all. We'll also be speaking at Collision 2022!

Why Is CIS Sponsoring and Attending This Event?

CIS is committed to helping organizations of all sizes and sectors secure their systems. One of the ways we do this is by making the security fundamentals easy to understand for everyone. Specifically, we leverage a community of volunteers from around the world to develop security best practices like the CIS Critical Security Controls (CIS Controls).

Their effectiveness is tested and validated by the CIS Community Defense Model (CDM). Ultimately, the CDM validates that essential cyber hygiene, or Implementation Group 1 (IG1) of the CIS Controls, is a powerful defense against the top five attack patterns found in the MITRE Enterprise ATT&CK framework. It also highlights the need for enterprises of all sizes to configure and maintain their security configuration posture using assessment tools, all while noting the importance of risk identification, risk quantification, risk assessment, and risk management.

Attending Collision 2022 is an ideal opportunity for CIS to educate the technology community about the value of our tools and resources in creating a safer online environment for their employees, customers, and other stakeholders. It's also a chance for us to meet our existing volunteer community at Booth E308 – and encourage others to participate, as well.

Essential Cyber Hygiene via CIS Best Practices

June 21st at 3 PM ET in Masterclass Room 2

Cyber attacks take advantage of “poor cyber hygiene” like unpatched software, poor configuration management, and outdated solutions. Poor cyber hygiene invites risks that can put day-to-day and long-term operations in jeopardy. Practicing essential cyber hygiene can mean the difference between thwarting an attempted cyber attack or becoming the victim of one. Join Phil White, Development Team Manager of the CIS Benchmarks, and Chris Boldiston, CIS Director of Support, as they discuss our continuum of security best practices that provide a viable defense against the top attack types.
