Announcing SecureTheVillage Webinar on CIS Controls 8.0

Barry Weber, a partner in Assured SPC will be joining Stan Stahl, a legendary cybersecurity evangelist in a lively discussion of the 18 controls in v8, including the Asset Type, Security Function, and applicability associated with each sub-control.

The release of CIS Controls 8.0 included significant changes from the previous version with specific goals of improving the prioritization of controls based on new and common attacks, practicality, clarity and alignment with security frameworks and other control lists. 

We will be discussing these changes including topics like how the controls have been modified to address the changes in where employees work, movement to cloud applications, need for improved identity management, alignment with the NIST CSF security functions.  The webinar is one of the many SecureTheVillage community cybersecurity activities.  This is a not for profit organization whose aim is to encourage wide geography and role education and participation in improving cybersecurity – because it takes a village.  There is no charge to join and no charge for this event which will be held on June 22 at 4PM PT.

Speakers: Barry Weber, ITIL, CISM, CIPP/US, and Stan Stahl, PhD
