About the CIS Benchmarks
CIS Benchmarks are consensus-developed secure configuration guidelines for hardening computing assets, including operating systems, servers, and cloud environments. Organizations around the world rely on the Benchmarks for conforming with PCI DSS, HIPAA, FedRAMP, and other widely adopted security regimens.
Available as a no-cost download for non-commercial use, the CIS Benchmarks are not derived from a single vendor or security manufacturer’s perspective. Instead, they’re developed and maintained by subject matter experts, security professionals, and technologists from around the world on a platform called CIS WorkBench.
In addition to being a hub where thousands gather to discuss configuration best practices, CIS WorkBench provides special features for creating custom configuration policies. It’s also a central repository for accessing CIS Benchmark files and content.
