Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmarks are best practices for secure configuration of a Windows system. CIS Benchmarks are the only consensus-based security best practices from cybersecurity experts around the world. CIS Benchmarks are categorized into level one (1) and level two (2).
A level one (1) is designed for a starting baseline for most organizations. The level one (1) benchmark is an essential basic security requirement that can be configured to cause little or no interruption of service or functionality and are a clear security benefit.
A level two (2) is designed for organizations that need high security or have a sensitive data environment. The level two (2) benchmark is intended for environments where security is more critical than manageability and usability.
