Program areas at CIS

Security best practices combines both the Security benchmarks and critical Security controls programs. The Security benchmarks program helps organizations improve their it Security posture by reducing risks resulting from inadequate technical Security controls. To accomplish this, the Security benchmarks program facilitates the consensus-based development of: (1) best practice standards for Security configuration, (2) tools for measuring information Security status, and (3) resources for making informed Security investment decisions. The critical Security controls program is a recommended set of actions for cyber defense that provide specific and actionable ways to thwart the most pervasive attacks. They are a relatively short list of high-priority, highly effective defensive actions that provide a "must do, do first" starting point for every enterprise seeking to improve their cyber defense.

The partner paid program offers services to all state, local, territorial, and tribal entities and public authorities to improve their overall cyber Security. These services include scanning, Security assessments, phishing exercises, and other cyber Security related services.

The mission of the ms-isac is to improve the overall cybersecurity posture of the nation's state, local, territorial, and tribal governments through focused cyber threat prevention, protection, response and recovery. The mission of the ei-isac is to improve the overall cybersecurity posture of sltt election offices, through collaboration and information sharing among members, the u.s. department of homeland Security (dhs) and other federal partners, and private sector partners are the keys to success.
