The goal of cyber security standards is to improve the security of information technology (IT) systems, networks, and critical infrastructures. A cyber security standard defines both functional and assurance requirements within a product, system, process, or technology environment. A standard must address user needs, but must also be practical since cost and technological limitations must be considered in building products to meet the standard. Additionally, a standard’s requirements must be verifiable; otherwise, users cannot assess security even when products are tested against the standard.
Many organizations security needs are driven by compliance requirements. Azure Security Center measures compliance against the following:
| Standard|| Author|| Description|
| Azure CIS 1.1.0|| Center for Internet Security|| Set of security controls
published by the Center for Internet Security|
| PCI DSS 3.2.1|| Payment Card Industry Standards
Council|| Standards required for
organizations that manage payment card data|
| ISO 27001|| International Standards
Organization|| Set of security controls for
information security systems. Standard 27017 is cloud computing specific.|
| NIST 800-53|| National Institute of Standards
and Technology|| Security and Privacy Controls for
Federal Information Systems and Organizations.|
Our proposal: let us manage your security compliance!
