Webinar - Back 2 Basics: Adopting the 6 'Basic' CIS Controls
Feb 20, 2020 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
"The majority of security incidents occur when basic controls are lacking or are poorly implemented. The first six CIS Controls have been assessed as preventing up to 90% of pervasive and dangerous cyber-attacks.”
John Gilligan (CEO of Center for Internet Security) testimony to the United States Senate, Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations,
Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee on Private Sector Data Breaches, Thursday, March 7, 2019.
A new year, new decade and a great time to take a good hard look at how susceptible your organization is to attack. Just how effectively does your organization operate the first six CIS cyber security controls? How vulnerable are your IT systems and what would you need to do to improve security? If 90% of cyber attacks can be prevented by mastering the first 6 controls, why hasn’t everyone already embraced them?
Join the Center for Internet Security and New Net Technologies for a review of the first six CIS (so-called ‘Basic’) Security Controls where you will learn
- What are the first six CIS Controls?
- What are the CIS Controls Implementation Groups and which group does your organization reside in?
- Where to start? What is a ‘reasonable’ implementation of CIS Controls and how can you accurately assess this for your own environment?
- What are the short-cuts, quick wins and low-hanging fruit?
This event is suitable for anyone with an interest in cyber security who is keen to understand how to improve their organization’s security defenses, better still, there will be a big virtual goody bag of freebies for all attendees, including a free-to-keep, fully functional vulnerability scanner!

The challenge with cyber security is the complexity and the choice, giving rise to "The fog of more". It’s not that we don’t have good defenses, but that we have so many, we can be crippled by them – Tony Sager, CIS Chief Evangelist
