New CIS Benchmark Projects

From time to time, EDUCAUSE partners with the Center for Internet Security (CIS) on the development of new benchmarks. Below is an announcement regarding some new CIS activities.  Please consider participating.

Note: EDUCAUSE Institutional Members receive a 50 percent discount on the fee they pay to become members of CIS. 

The Center for Internet Security(CIS) is beginning work on several new benchmarks and would like to invite the members of the higher edducation community to participate in our consensus process.

For those of you new to CIS, we are a not-for-profit, end-user group that develops security guides, which we call benchmarks, by bringing together teams of experts who discuss security recommendations made in a draft.  These teams work via teleconference and email lists to reach consensus on the best security recommendations for a particular platform.  This process has proven very effective at creating detailed and useful benchmarks, while providing excellent opportunities for all involved to interact with their peers.
