How to Navigate the Cybersecurity Audit Cycle with CIS SecureSuite

Looking to build or revamp your governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) program? Figuring out how to get started can be difficult, especially if you're on your own.

With a CIS SecureSuite Membership, you're not alone.

In this webinar, our CISO will provide an overview of how you can use Membership benefits, tools, and resources to navigate the cybersecurity audit cycle. He'll then put this into practice with live demonstrations of CIS-CAT Pro and CIS CSAT Pro, which help with implementation of the CIS Benchmarks and CIS Controls best practices, respectively.

By attending our webinar, you'll learn:

  • How to spot gaps in your security posture with CIS-CAT Pro ahead of an external audit
  • How CIS CSAT Pro can help you with risk-based remediation
  • Where and how the output of both CIS-CAT Pro and CIS CSAT Pro fit into a GRC program
