CIS offers seminars covering a range of topics, including cybersecurity fundamentals, implementation of the CIS Controls, and strategies to minimize cyber risk. With over 50 years of combined cybersecurity training experience, our presenters can speak to a wide variety of audiences, from IT professionals to senior executives.

Available Presentations

Threats and Best Practices (1 hour)

Covers the threat landscape, how it impacts organizations that are not prepared, and what steps can be taken to help minimize risk.

Cyber Risk Insurance (1 hour)

Provides an overview of cybersecurity, how the cyber risk industry is evolving, and key questions to ask before purchasing insurance (both of the broker and your own organization).

CIS Controls 101 (2-3 hours)

Covers the threat landscape and the CIS Controls, a relatively short list of high-priority, highly effective defensive actions that provide a "must do, do first" starting point for every organization seeking to improve its cybersecurity posture.

Cyber Risk Management (2-3 hours)

Provides practical steps to apply the CIS Controls to your organization’s IT risk management process.

Technical Implementation of the CIS Controls (2-3 hours)

Discusses how to implement the CIS Controls in your organization from a technical perspective. Covers concepts such as how to use common tools to implement the CIS Controls and how organizations can work within a limited budget.

Cybersecurity Roundtable (3 hours)

Two CIS staff (at least one being a member of senior staff) engage with a small group of executives (board directors, C-suites) in-person around the cybersecurity issues businesses face. May be offered to multiple companies or one company as part of a retreat.

Fundamentals Training (8 hours)

Full day of training for risk managers and related staff in cybersecurity and how to use the CIS Cyber Risk Assessment Tool, a step-by-step guide that helps organizations quickly and efficiently evaluate their cybersecurity posture and provides targeted recommendations on how to improve. It is based on the CIS Controls and updated periodically to reflect real threats.
