Information security assessments centered on standard controls – NIST, ISO, CIS 20

Information security posture assessments using one of the industry accepted control frameworks such as NIST, ISO 27002, or CIS 20 provides organizations a strategic view of their overall security health and resilience. The assessment provides a baseline from which to evaluate the effectiveness of current security processes and allows IT security teams to set objectives and priorities.

Security assessments are diverse in how they are conducted in terms of what is assessed and how that assessment is leveraged to improve security processes and resilience. Using established control frameworks such as NIST, ISO 27002 or CIS 20 has become a best practice in terms of measuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of an organization’s assets across critical domains. Understanding where you are, where you want to be and how to get there from a security health or posture perspective is critical to improving your processes and controls efficiently.
