CIS Critical Security Controls
Simplify CIS Critical Security Controls Implementation
The CIS Controls for Effective Cyber Defense (CSC) is a set of information security control recommendations developed by the Center for Internet Security (CIS).
CSC consists of best practices compiled from a variety of sectors, including power, defense, transportation, finance and more. Many organizations – especially those with multinational operations – utilize CSC to protect their network by focusing on the top security controls – those that provide the best protection against the most dangerous threats.
Tenable Security Center (formerly Tenable.sc) provides an automated approach to implementing and monitoring the CIS Critical Security Controls. It delivers continuous monitoring and out-of-the-box reports, dashboards and the industry’s only Assurance Report Cards® (ARCs) to help you address CSC’s five critical tenets: offense informs defense, prioritization, metrics, continuous diagnostics and mitigation, and automation.
