How does your company understand the quality of their security posture against industry recognized security standards?

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!
