Webinar: Modernizing Your Cyber Security Approach with the Center for Internet Security
During this Webinar, you’ll hear directly from our panel of experts as we discussed the increased importance of applying the Center for Internet Security standard to your modern cyber security approach. We also be highlighted the benefits of combining the CIS standards with ongoing, real-time compliance monitoring.
During this webinar we also be covered:
- Why is it that a huge number of breaches are still able to exploit existing known vulnerabilities?
- Why do you need to understand the state of the configuration of your IT estate?
- Why do organizations tend to prioritize focus on perimeter defenses at the expense of the actual systems that store sensitive data?
- What is the latest guidance with respect to Ransomware?
- Why is CIS relevant?
- Eliminating vulnerabilities by hardening comes with a health warning - there’s an element of risk when access/functionality is disabled – what is the safest way to do it?
This session is designed to help you review why the Center for Internet Security is relevant and how you can be leveraging its resources to improve the security of your IT estate.
