  • The Top 20 Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense

    In a threat landscape that evolves rapidly and unpredictably, we recognize that our customers need to protect their entire IT environment against both external and internal attacks. Threats and risks arrive from many angles, requiring access to a broad range of defensive methods. Many organizations are now adopting the Top 20 Critical Security Controls, developed by the SANS Institute to help prioritize the most effective methods and policies to safeguard assets, information, and infrastructure. In order to help our customers adopt a "best practices" approach to securing their networks, we have released a new module with out-of-the-box advanced alerts, investigations, and reports that map directly to elements of the SANS Top 20 Critical Controls. This paper outlines how LogRhythm’s Security Intelligence Platform maps directly to each of the Top 20 Critical Security Controls.
