How CIS Controls 1-5 Could Have Prevented Headline-Making Breaches
Most IT security professionals want to avoid the headlines, and many think it cannot happen to their organization. Yet time and time again, we see security breaches making the news at well known and well respected organizations. There are a multitude of reasons this can happen, but “not following foundational CIS Controls” should not be one of them.
Granted, that may not be the “official” reason given, but we’ll take a look at recent breaches at Google, Equifax and generic ransomware and show how, if they had implemented The Center for Internet Security’s Controls 1-5, these breaches would not have happened.
