O’Fallon, IL, December 6, 2017 – Alpine Security announced that it has become a CIS SecureSuite Service member. Through this membership, Alpine Security is further bolstering its client’s cybersecurity defenses by leveraging CIS SecureSuite resources. These resources include CIS Benchmarks, which are consensus-based, internationally recognized security configuration resources. Benchmarks include CIS-CAT Pro and CIS Controls, a set of cyber practices developed by experts around the world to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous cyber attacks.
“We are pleased to add the CIS SecureSuite Service membership to our already robust cybersecurity defense and audit toolbox,” said Christian Espinosa, CEO of Alpine Security. “CIS Benchmarks are recommended as prioritized, risk-based system hardening best-practices. They are used by organizations worldwide to both improve cybersecurity defenses and meet compliance requirements for FISMA, PCI, HIPAA, and more.” he added.
“We are excited to welcome Alpine Security as a CIS SecureSuite Service member, and look forward to collaborating with them to help enhance the cybersecurity posture of their clients,” said Curtis Dukes, Executive V.P. and G.M., CIS Security Best Practices & Automation.
CIS experts constantly refine industry-accepted best practice standards, known as CIS Benchmarks, for secure configuration of the most commonly used IT systems and technologies. CIS’s SecureSuite membership provides members with tools for measuring information security status and resources for making informed security investment decisions. Members include organizations from virtually every industry sector and every size, ranging from independent consultants to Fortune 500 companies. And with recent upgrades to CIS’s CIS-CAT Pro tool, each SecureSuite member now has a dynamic view into their system’s conformance with the CIS Benchmarks and how it maps to the CIS Controls over time.
CIS (https://www.cisecurity.org/) is a forward-thinking nonprofit entity that harnesses the power of the global IT community to safeguard private and public organizations against cyber threats. Our CIS Controls and CIS Benchmarks are the global standard and recognized best practices for securing IT systems and data against the most pervasive attacks. These proven guidelines are continually refined and verified by a volunteer global community of experienced IT professionals. CIS is home to the Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center (MS-ISAC®), the go-to resource for cyber threat prevention, protection, response, and recovery for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments.
