School Cybersecurity Implementation Guide

June 1, 2024


C1 Cyber is currently preparing to publish a 388 page manual that will guide school district technology staff in fully implementing The Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls version 8.  Two years in the making, this comprehensive manual serves as a guide for implementation of the safeguards contained in the Center for Internet Security (CIS©).

This manual will help staff to understand what each of the 18 Controls and 153 Safeguards represent, and guide staff in the steps necessary to implement each Safeguard.   Whether your district needs assistance figuring out where to start, or you are somewhere in the implementation process, this manual will assist by clearly defining what each of the Safeguards mean, and tips to proper implementation.


Appendices cross reference the Controls and Safeguards that make up the CIS Controls v8, to the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) CSF, and the C1 Cyber Cybersecurity Posture Assessment.  This manual is a must have for any school district actively seeking to improve their cybersecurity maturity.
