CIS Security

As we increase our Cyber Security offering, we are committed to implementing the best practices for our internet systems.

AC3 is pleased to announce that we are now a CIS SecureSuite member. Through this membership we will continue to build our cyber security practice and defences by leveraging CIS SecureSuite resources. These include CIS Benchmarks which are consensus-based, internationally recognised security configuration resources, including CIS-CAT Pro and CIS Controls – a set of cyber practices. These have been developed by experts around the world with the core goal of preventing and halting today’s most prevalent and dangerous cyber attacks.

“We are pleased to add our new CIS SecureSuite membership to our increasing cyber security offering,” said Simon Xistouris, AC3 CEO. “We chose this membership as CIS Benchmarks are recommended as industry best practice and we want to pass that confidence onto our customers”.

“We are excited to welcome AC3 as a CIS SecureSuite member and look forward to collaborating with them to help enhance their cyber security posture,” said Curtis Dukes, Executive VP and GM, CIS Security Best Practices & Automation. 

CIS experts constantly refine industry-accepted best practice standards, known as CIS Benchmarks, for secure configuration of the most commonly used IT systems and technologies. CIS’ SecureSuite membership provides members with tools for measuring information security status and resources for making informed security investment decisions. We’re joining a large list of other members, including organisations from virtually every industry sector and every size, ranging from independent consultants to Fortune 500 companies.
