Securing an environment can be a challenging task. What framework to select, NIST Cyber Security Framework, ISO27000 or others? The Center for Internet Security’s CIS Controls provide an approachable solution to that challenge.

Following on from his 'Use Security Principles to Guide Security Strategy' advisory paper, IBRS advisor Peter Sandilands conducted a webinar where he shares a simpler starting point to securing a security strategy:

CIS Controls are a pragmatic, measurable and scalable path to better security. This session will walk through the controls and show how an organisation can use them as a tactical pathway. Built around real world experience in deploying the controls the session will demonstrate usable approaches to prioritise control selection, leverage staffing and measure the impact.
