CIS Benchmarks for Azure

Center for Internet Security (CIS) is a nonprofit organization that identifies, develops, validates, promotes, and sustains best practice solutions for cyber defense and build and lead communities to enable an environment of trust in cyberspace. CIS Benchmarks provide global standards for internet security and are a recognized global standard and best practices for securing IT systems and data against attacks. CIS Benchmarks consist of a set of rules for a subset of Azure with an emphasis on foundation, testable, and architecture agnostic settings. Specific Azure scope of this benchmark include:

  • Identity and Access Management (IAM)

  • Security Center
