Real-Time Auditing for the 20 Critical Security Controls
Tenable Network Security recognized a decade ago that continuous activity monitoring is a critical complement to point-in-time scanning to assure continuous security and network health. Tenable Continuous Network Monitoring provides organizations with real-time visibility and assurance that the entire IT landscape remains compliant with security policies. Continuous monitoring eliminates risk, helps you respond to threats and compliance violations, streamlines investigations, and identifies failing security processes.
Tenable’s solutions can help you to achieve compliance with the Council on CyberSecurity Top 20 Critical Security Controls by ensuring that key assets are properly configured and monitored for security compliance. The Critical Security Controls initiative provides a unified list of twenty critical controls that have been identified through a consensus of federal and private industry security professionals as the most critical security issues seen in the industry. According to its website, the Council on CyberSecurity is the “successor organization to the National Board of Information Security Examiners (NBISE)”, and “home to the U.S. Cyber Challenge, (formerly a program of NBISE), that works with the cybersecurity community to bring accessible, compelling programs that motivate students and professionals to pursue education, development and career opportunities in cybersecurity.” The controls do not introduce any new security requirements, but organize the requirements into a simplified list to aid in determining compliance and ensure that the most important areas of concern are addressed.
