Mapping Your Way To Compliance With Cybersecurity Frameworks

April 26, 2021

CSO Online

Today's IT and information security professionals can find themselves tasked with satisfying myriad regulatory frameworks. But the primary responsibility for cybersecurity professionals is to keep their organization's assets and data safe from an attack. A truly efficient approach protects the organization while also meeting compliance requirements. This is where the CIS Controls and CIS Benchmarks can help.

While frameworks and standards usually explain "what" you need to do to achieve compliance, the organizational policies and workflows of the CIS Controls, plus the detailed configuration checks of CIS Benchmarks, go a few steps further.
