Complexities in compliance frameworks often make it challenging for organizations to interpret and meet the requirements outlined.

The key technical controls include access management solutions, multi-factor authentication, privileged access management, remote access management, allowlisting, antimalware solutions, firewalls, detection/prevention solutions, web filters, email security, microsegmentation, removable media control, mobile device management, logging solutions, patch management, penetration testing, threat intelligence sharing, data protection measures, secure data disposal, encryption of sensitive data, backup systems, physical security controls, security awareness training, and written policies.

By implementing these controls and exploring the “The IT Professional’s Blueprint for Compliance” guidebook offered by ThreatLocker, organizations can align their security practices with various compliance frameworks like NIST SP 800-171, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, CIS Critical Security Controls, Essential Eight Maturity Model, Cyber Essentials, and HIPAA.
