IS18 Controls

The Mile2® IS18 Controls – IS18 certification course is intended for anyone interested in learning effective information systems governance and management. This 4-day training course focuses on the implementation and analysis of the IS18 Top Controls. These controls have been identified as critical by leading government and private organizations with expertise in understanding attack techniques and mitigating risks. They are designed to prevent known attacks and minimize the impact of successful attacks. 


By adopting the IS18 Top Controls, organizations can enhance the security of their sensitive information. This training course equips security professionals with the tools and methodologies necessary to execute and assess these controls within their existing network infrastructure. Automation is emphasized as a highly effective and cost-efficient approach to implementing these controls. 


For management personnel, this training provides valuable insights into assessing the effectiveness of the security controls in place. It enables them to evaluate whether the controls are being properly administered and to make informed decisions regarding security measures.
