Indiana University has a subscription to the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks program. IT Pros will find these benchmarks useful in improving the security of systems they maintain. With widespread use of the benchmarks, we'll improve the overall security posture at IU.
The CIS Benchmarks program is a consensus-based set of industry best practices that helps organizations assess and improve the security of their computer systems. CIS provides a number of resources such as configuration benchmarks, automated configuration assessment tools as well as security metrics and security software product certifications.
