Neworder Industries today announced that it has become a CIS SecureSuite member. Through this membership, Neworder Industries is further bolstering its cyber security defences by leveraging CIS SecureSuite resources that include CIS Benchmarks, consensus-based, internationally recognised security configuration resources, including 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 our new CIS SecureSuite membership to our already robust cyber defence toolbox," said Marthinus Engelbrecht, CEO. "CIS Benchmarks are recommended as industry-accepted system hardening standards and are used by organisations in meeting compliance requirements for FISMA, PCI, HIPAA, and other security requirements," he added.
"We are excited to welcome NEWORDER INDUSTRIES as a CIS SecureSuite member, and look forward to collaborating with them to help enhance their cyber security posture," said Curtis Dukes, Executive VP and GM, CIS Security Best Practices and 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 organisations 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 organisations against cyber threats. Its CIS Controls and CIS Benchmarks are the global standard and recognised 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 and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), the go-to resource for cyber threat prevention, protection, response, and recovery for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments.
