The Twenty Critical Security Controls (20 CSC) have emerged as the “defacto yardstick by which corporate security programs can be measured,” according to the Cybersecurity Law Institute.
The 20 CSC were previously governed by SANS, but the ongoing development and adoption of the controls are now the responsibility of the Council on CyberSecurity, an independent, expert, not-for-profit organization with a global scope.
Prioritizing implementation of the 20 CSC can be daunting. In this video, the Council on CyberSecurity’s Tony Sager and Keren Cummins, Tripwire’s Director of Federal Solutions, discuss strategies for efficacy.
