News

19 December 2018

KJR recently announced that it has become a CIS SecureSuite member. Through this membership KJR is further bolstering its cybersecurity defenses by leveraging CIS SecureSuite resources that include CIS Benchmarks, consensus-based, internationally recognised security configuration resources, including CIS-CAT Pro, and CIS Controls, a set of cyber practices, developed by experts around the world, to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous cyber attacks.

“We are pleased to add our new CIS SecureSuite membership to our already robust cyber defense toolbox,” said Ashley Howden, KJR CEO. “CIS Benchmarks are recommended as industry-accepted system hardening standards and are used by organizations in meeting compliance requirements for FISMA, PCI, HIPAA, and other security requirements,” he added.

“We are excited to welcome KJR as a CIS SecureSuite member, and look forward to collaborating with them to help enhance their cybersecurity posture,” said Steve Spano, CIS President and COO.

CIS experts constantly refine industry-accepted best practice standards, known as CIS Benchmarks, for secure configuration of the most commonly used IT systems and technologies. CIS’s SecureSuite membership  provides members with tools for measuring information security status and resources for making informed security investment decisions. Members include organizations from virtually every industry sector and every size, ranging from independent consultants to Fortune 500 companies. And with recent upgrades to CIS’s CIS-CAT Pro tool, each SecureSuite member now has a dynamic view into their system’s conformance with the CIS Benchmarks and how it maps to the CIS Controls over time.
