Trends in Cybersecurity Frameworks and Foundational Controls – a Survey of IT Security Professionals
Where are you on the security framework adoption journey?
Foundational security controls provide an important starting place for achieving cybersecurity effectiveness and efficiency. They are also common to virtually all security frameworks. Recognizing their impact, Tenable and the Center for Internet Security (CIS) have, for the second year in a row, co-sponsored a Dimensional Research survey assessing trends in framework adoption.
Based on responses from 324 information security decision makers at companies with more than 100 employees, the report quantifies and compares the current state with prior-year results. By reading the report, you’ll gain new insights into trends in framework adoption, with specific focus on the first five CIS Controls.
- The framework adoption journey is stalled
- NIST CSF was the only framework with increased adoption
- One may not be enough – 54% have adopted multiple frameworks
- Framework adoption isn’t easy – 96% face impediments
- Automation is still lagging < 50% have automated any foundational controls
