The CIS Critical Controls were developed as a framework to not only ensure the successful realization of basic cybersecurity hygiene, but to lead to the planning and implementation of a robust security protocol. To build any cybersecurity protection schemata, it is necessary to know the extent of what it is you are protecting.
At the small to midsize business level, cyberattacks aren’t merely annoying — they can spell certain doom for those already struggling to get by. Hence the need for robust security protocol. That’s exactly what the Center for Internet Security provides with its Top 20 list of Critical Security Controls. While these controls have been in the making for well over a decade, they’ve recently gained greater prominence at the federal and state level — and among private entities. In this blog we offer an in-depth overview of this critical security tool, as well as suggestions for implementation.
