Originally developed in 2008 and currently on version 6.1, The Center for Internet Security’s Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense (known as the CIS Top 20 Controls) are, “a recommended set of actions for cyber defense that provide specific and actionable ways to thwart the most pervasive attacks.” Seen as a starting point for prioritizing cyber defense, the CIS Top 20 Controls map to many existing frameworks such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, NIST 800-53, ISO 27000 and regulations such as PCI, HIPAA, NERC CIP, and FISMA. The Top 20 CIS Controls have been adopted by thousands of enterprises worldwide.
