Staying secure can be a challenge, especially for organizations working in a regulated environment. Organizations in regulated industries can rely on the industry-recognized, community-developed CIS Benchmarks to help them meet their various cybersecurity compliance requirements. The CIS Benchmarks from The Center for Internet Security (CIS) are consensus-based secure configuration guidelines that help organizations around the globe meet common compliance framework requirements.
The CIS Benchmarks are recognized by multiple compliance frameworks from the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), to the Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG). To ensure the CIS Benchmarks provide the most up-to-date information, CIS continues to work with a global community of cybersecurity experts to develop new and update existing Benchmarks, including new best practice guidelines for organizations that need to comply with DoD requirements.
