CIS Critical Security Controls V7.1 Change Log

This spreadsheet provides an overview of the changes from CIS Critical Security Controls (CIS Controls) Version 7 to Version 7.1. Our goal is to provide a reference document to quickly see the specific changes in Version 7, and help organizations that choose to transition any tools or processes that were built around Version 6.

The key principles in CIS Controls V7.1:

  1. Implementation Groups (IGs) – a completely new prioritization structure for the CIS Controls and Sub-Controls
  2. A detailed methodology to help organizations assess which IG they fall within
  3. Edits requested by the global community that significantly address clarity of certain CIS Controls and Sub-Controls
