CIS Benchmark Self Assessment

Welcome to the CIS Benchmark Self-Assessment. This benchmark has 56 questions that focus on cybersecurity controls and policies within the CIS Framework. You will be presented with a question and 5 possible answers. If you are unsure of what an answer means, hover over the question mark next to the answer for further explanation. Each question will be graded 0 through 4 based on how the controls are implemented. Once you have answered a question, click Next to move to the next question. You will be able to go back and make changes to your answers until you hit finish at the Submit of the benchmark at which point all answers are locked for grading.

NOTE: You have selected the CIS Benchmark Self-Assessment. This is a shortened version of the CIS benchmark with only those controls listed in the level 1 benchmark of the CIS. If you have taken this benchmark before we do NOT recommend taking it again. Please select a more advanced benchmark to identify the true security standing of your organization.

After the benchmark, you will be presented an executive summary that breaks down your results by category starting with the lowest scores and moving up. This will allow your organization to focus on those areas with the least number of controls in place first, to ensure controls are implemented at a baseline level across the board. You will also be able to compare your results from this benchmark with one or more of the other benchmark options available within the Cyber Readiness Evaluation.
