Netwrix: How To Implement A CIS Hardened Build Standard
Commercial and open source system configurations generally lack all the necessary security measures needed before deploying into production. These configurations will often times have features and functionalities enabled by default, making them less secure and a prime target for today’s cyber criminals. Implementing a CIS hardened build standard can help you address this issue by disabling and removing unnecessary functionalities and features, allowing your security team to proactively minimize system vulnerabilities, enhance system integrity, achieve compliance, and reduce your attack surface.
We’re on a mission to improve cyber security for everyone. That’s why we’ve launched our new Engineers Workshop to help make the understanding and operating the CIS Controls as easy and accessible as possible.
