Security at every level

Developed by HALOCK Security Labs in partnership with CIS, CIS RAM provides three separate security approaches to support different levels of organizational capability.

  • New to risk analysis? You can use CIS RAM’s instructions for modeling foreseeable threats against the CIS Controls as your organization applies them.
  • Experienced with cybersecurity? Follow instructions for modeling threats against information assets to determine how the CIS Controls should be configured to protect them.
  • Cyber risk expert? Use CIS RAM’s instructions for analyzing risks based on “attack paths” using CIS’ Community Attack Model.
