Demonstrate your Compliance with CIS AWS Benchmarks

CIS AWS Benchmarks, also known as the Center for Internet Security Amazon Web Services Benchmarks, is a set of security guidelines and best practices developed by the Center for Internet Security (CIS) for securing Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments. The CIS AWS Benchmarks provide specific recommendations for configuring various AWS services and resources to enhance security and reduce potential vulnerabilities. 

The CIS AWS Benchmarks cover a wide range of AWS services and configurations, including IAM (Identity and Access Management), EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), S3 (Simple Storage Service), RDS (Relational Database Service), and more. They address areas such as access control, monitoring, logging, encryption, networking, and other security-related aspects of AWS deployments.

Compliance with CIS AWS Benchmarks is beneficial for a variety of stakeholders, including but not limited to the following:

  1. Organizations: Businesses and institutions that utilize AWS services can adopt these benchmarks to safeguard their cloud-based assets, data, and operations.
  2. Security Teams: Security teams responsible for ensuring the protection of their organization’s AWS environment can use the benchmarks as a reference for setting up security configurations.
  3. Compliance Officers and Auditors: Compliance officers can use the CIS AWS Benchmarks as a framework for evaluating an organization’s AWS security posture during audits.
  4. Cloud Service Providers: Companies that offer cloud security services may use these benchmarks as a foundation for designing and implementing security measures for their clients’ AWS environments.

While compliance with CIS AWS Benchmarks is not mandatory by default, they are widely recognized as industry best practices for securing AWS environments. Many security-conscious organizations, particularly those in regulated industries or those handling sensitive data, often adopt the CIS AWS Benchmarks as part of their security compliance efforts.

What Our Clients Say

We used databrackets (formerly EHR 2.0) in our small medical practice for our risk analysis assessment to be in compliance with meaningful use. Their response was fast, the final report is detailed but simple and easy to follow. They were always available to answer our questions.
