As the threat landscape continues to expand and breaches continue to grow in size and scale, organizations are looking for best practices to protect their networks from intrusion and data loss. With the severe lack of security talent skilled in preventive technology and its implementation, standardized security best practices can ease the implementation and management of advanced security. Developed by leading security experts at the Center for Internet Security, the CIS Controls consists of a set of recommended security best practices that can be implemented by any organization to create standardized, repeatable procedures that have been proved to block attacks, reduce attack surfaces and establish better defense posture.

In addition, regulators are continuing to enact more legislation to protect data privacy. Several new regulations, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and New York’s Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security (SHIELD) Act, strive to protect the data privacy of citizens. They place restrictions on how organizations that are doing business in these states can use personal data collected from consumers and requires organizations to provide consumers more information and control over the sharing of their data. A violation of the regulation may result in potentially high penalties. While these legislative acts do not define the exact security measures or procedures to protect personal data, implementing the top 20 CIS Controls is considered an essential security practice to help organizations comply with these regulations.
