Continuous Vulnerability Management

CIS Controls and CIS Benchmarks provide global standards for internet security, and are a recognized global standard and best practices for securing IT systems and data against attacks. CIS maintains “The CIS Controls”, a popular set of 20 security controls which map to many industry standard compliance and governance frameworks. Through an independent consensus process, CIS Benchmarks provide frameworks to help organizations bolster their security.

“Cyber defenders must operate in a constant stream of new information: software updates, patches, security advisories, threat bulletins, etc. Understanding and managing vulnerabilities has become a continuous activity, requiring significant time, attention, and resources. Organizations that do not scan for vulnerabilities and proactively address discovered flaws face a significant likelihood of having their computer systems compromised.”
