The Council on Cybersecurity, which includes Leidos, has updated its security control framework intended to help security practitioners mitigate risks within their networks.
The 20 critical security controls were made to serve as guidelines for organizations to build up their security posture, Leidos said Monday.
Sam Gordy, Leidos ‘integrated systems group president, said the company supports the adoption of the critical controls across industries and continues to use the framework to help the government define secure system architectures.
“The critical controls apply across industries, and the mapping work produced by the Council on Cybersecurity is critical to allowing diverse organizations to make use of the recommended controls,” added Tony Sager, chief technologist at the Council on Cybersecurity.
The controls also are intended to function as tools for designing and developing new information technology systems.
