CIS Controls v8.0
The CIS Controls™ v8.0 consists of 18 security control families with 153 total safeguard controls. The safeguard controls are divided into three implementation groups (IGs) to help your organization effectively and efficiently prioritize efforts when building a security strategy.
CIS Controls™ Version 8.0 differs from version 7.1 in that it has consolidated the number of controls from 20 to 18 and reduced the total recommended controls from 171 to 153. There are three Implementation Groups (IG’s), which are an effective way organizations can classify themselves and focus on controls based on their size, resources, and expertise.
