35. What is the CIS Security Benchmarks Division and why are information security policies so critical in today’s I.T. world, and do you offer comprehensive I.T. security documentation?

The CIS Security Benchmarks Division (which is actually a division within the Center for Internet Security-CIS) provides an abundance of resources and solutions for helping organizations regarding the enhancement of cyber security readiness and response mechanisms. Specifically, the CIS Security Benchmarks Division offers the following available resources:

  • Benchmarks, metrics, and assessment tools
  • Whitepapers
  • Webcasts
  • Compliance Guidance
  • Support Services

It’s a great resource for obtaining quality documentation that’s been thoroughly vetted and agreed upon by leading information security experts. Moreover, for organizations that struggle to implement proper hardening procedures because of operational constraints or technical limitations, the documentation provided is often easy-to-follow and understand, yet still in-depth from a security perspective.
