Center for Internet Security streamlines heralded family of controls in ‘version 8’

May 19, 2021

Inside Cybersecurity

The Center for Internet Security has updated and streamlined its well-known security controls in “CIS Controls v8,” addressing cloud and mobile device security while moving to develop “the whole ecosystem” through promotion of risk management, self-assessment, and the “Community Defense Model,” among other elements.

“The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here.

The pandemic changed a lot of things, and it also prompted changes in the CIS Controls,” CIS said in a blog post on Tuesday, titled “18 is the new 20: CIS Controls v8 is here!”
