CIS Controls

The CIS Critical Security Controls are the recommended set of actions for cyber defence that provide specific and actionable ways to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous attacks. A principal benefit of the Controls is that they prioritize and focus a smaller number of actions with high pay-off results.

The Controls are effective because they are derived from the most common attack patterns highlighted in the leading threat reports and vetted across a very broad community of government and industry practitioners. They were created by the people who know how attacks work – NSA Red and Blue teams, the US Department of Energy nuclear energy labs, law enforcement organizations and some of the nation’s top forensics and incident response organizations.
