CIS Benchmarks are trusted security configuration guides accepted by various sectors. They offer a foundation for securing systems and networks and help with cybersecurity framework compliance. These benchmarks come in two levels:
1. Level 1 focuses on basic security measures suitable for all systems, providing reasonable protection against common attacks.
2. Level 2 offers extra security controls tailored to specific system functions, suitable for systems handling sensitive data or critical services.
In summary, Level 1 is for foundational security, while Level 2 adds specialized controls.
