Nonetheless, recent developments have been focusing more on compliance rather than the continually evolving threats that need to be addressed.  In 2008, the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) recognized these oversights as a serious problem and, together with a consortium of U.S. and international agencies, developed the Critical Security Controls (CSC 20) to greatly improve risk posture against real-world threats.

At Globalquest Solutions, we know the importance of effective cyber defense. That’s why we’ve gone to great lengths to gain a thorough understanding of the latest CSC 20 framework  in order to ensure that our clients are employing the most up to date guidance.  Most notably, the framework places a strong emphasis on “what works” and has been demonstrated to have real world effectiveness. In this way, CSC 20 centers on efficient security functions that actually defend against the latest advanced threats.

In essence, CSC 20 prioritizes a select number of actionable controls with potential to yield exceptional results. Additionally, due to being patterned after the most common attacks as well as tested and reviewed across government and industry sectors, CSC 20 confidently serves as the key method for immediate high-value action.
