Basic cyber hygiene is the foundation for any good cybersecurity program. Tony Sager, CIS VP and Chief Evangelist, recently defined basic cyber hygiene as Implementation Group 1 (IG1) of the CIS Critical Security Controls, or CIS Controls for short. The Safeguards (formerly known as Sub-Controls) covered in IG1 can help protect organizations from all five of the top attack vectors.
Thousands of organizations have already made the move from traditional spreadsheet tracking of CIS Controls implementation to take advantage of the CIS Controls Self-Assessment Tool (CIS CSAT). The Center for Internet Security (CIS) has introduced CIS CSAT Pro, which offers enhanced features and benefits.
