2 01 INTRODUCTION The Need for a Risk-Based Approach A common factor across many recent security breaches is that the targeted enterprise was compliant, meaning they passed their Payment Card Industry (PCI) audit, yet customer data was still compromised. Simply being compliant is not enough to mitigate probable attacks and protect critical information. In today s constantly evolving threat landscape, organizations need to focus on securing the business first and documenting the process to show compliance second, not the other way around. While there s no silver bullet, organizations can reduce chances of compromise by moving from a compliancedriven to a risk management approach to security. What are the Top 20 Critical Security Controls? In 2008, the SANS Institute, a research and education organization for security professionals, developed the Top 20 Critical Security Controls (CSCs) to address the need for a risk-based approach to security. Prior to this, security standards and requirements frameworks were predominantly compliance-based, with little relevance to the real-world threats they are intended to address. The Controls are prioritized to help organizations focus security efforts to have the greatest impact in improving their risk posture. In 2013, the stewardship of the Controls was transferred to the Council on CyberSecurity, an independent, global non-profit entity. 88% According to the US State Department, organizations can achieve more than 88% risk reduction through rigorous automation and measurement of the Controls. The Critical Controls Two Guiding Principles Prevention is ideal but detection is a must While controls that prevent attacks against networks and systems are essential, controls that detect and thwart attackers inside a network that has already been breached are also needed. Through fast detection of compromised machines, organizations can prevent follow-on attack activities that would have otherwise resulted in financial and reputational losses. Rapid7 UserInsight addresses this very need to detect security incidents and intruder behavior quickly and effectively, before attacjers can cause damage. Offense informs defense The Controls is a consensus list developed by experts with deep knowledge of actual attacks, current threats and effective defensive techniques. This ensures that only controls that can be shown to detect, prevent and mitigate known real-world attacks are included. Leveraging over 200,000 open source community members and industry-leading security researchers, Rapid7 s security data and analytics solutions are informed by deep understanding of the threat landscape and attacker methods.
