Cybersecurity Best Practices

TechTV Webinar Series

The Center for Internet Security (CIS) has identified 20 foundational cybersecurity controls to help establish protections against the most pervasive cybersecurity attacks. The CIS Controls are a short list of high-priority, highly effective defensive actions that provide a “must-do, do-first” starting point for every enterprise seeking to improve their cyber defense.

Our TechTV webinar series is designed to help educate and inform organizations about the prioritized sets of actions and essential safeguards needed to protect the operating systems, software, and networks most vulnerable to today’s most prevalent security attacks.

Follow these critical CIS Controls to ensure your organization is secure from cyber attacks.
