What are CIS Controls?
Initially developed in 2009 by the SANS Institute and known as the SANS Critical Controls, the CIS Controls are now managed by the Center for Internet Security (CIS). The controls are periodically updated by a worldwide community of experts who apply their experience as CISOs and security professionals. The current version of the CIS Controls is 7.1.
CIS Critical Security Control categories.
The twenty CIS controls are separated into three categories: basic, foundational and organizational. Originally, SANS recommended that organizations with limited resources implement the six basic controls first. But in 2019, CIS issued more nuanced guidance in the form of implementation groups. Each implementation group identifies a set of CIS Controls that is appropriate for an organization with a similar risk profile and resources to strive to implement.
