As the threat landscape continues to expand and data breaches continue to grow in size and scale, organizations need a set of prioritized actions and actionable ways to stop today’s most dangerous attacks. For organizations looking for clarity on what really needs to be focused on in terms of cyber security defenses, NNT recommends the CIS Controls.
The SANS Institute supports the CIS Controls and recently published this years’ Security Leadership Poster.
This poster maps out the five keys for building a cybersecurity program, which includes:
1. Find Frameworks that Fit
2. Map Controls to the Framework
3. Manage and Assess Risk
4. Measure Maturity and Progress
5. Monitor and Measure Security
