Helion Technologies Becomes a CIS SecureSuite Member

Timonium, MD –­ May 21, 2019 –­ Helion Technologies today announced it has become a CIS SecureSuite® member. Through this membership, Helion is bolstering its auto dealership clients' cybersecurity defenses by leveraging CIS SecureSuite resources. The CIS Benchmarks, the consensus-based, internationally recognized security configuration resources, CIS-CAT Pro, and the CIS Controls, a set of cyber practices developed by global experts, all help to protect an organization against pervasive and dangerous cyber-attacks.

 

“We are pleased to add our new CIS SecureSuite membership to our already robust cyber defense toolbox,” said Erik Nachbahr, president and founder of Helion. “CIS Benchmarks are recommended as industry-accepted system hardening standards and are used by organizations in meeting compliance requirements for FISMA, PCI, HIPAA, and other security requirements."

 

“We welcome Helion Technologies as a CIS SecureSuite member, and look forward to collaborating with them to help enhance their clients' cybersecurity posture,” said Curtis Dukes, CIS Executive Vice President Security Best Practices & Automation Group.

 

CIS’s SecureSuite membership provides members with tools for measuring information security status and resources for making informed security investment decisions. Members include organizations from virtually every industry sector and every size, ranging from independent consultants to Fortune 500 companies. Recent upgrades to CIS’s CIS-CAT Pro tool now provides SecureSuite members a dynamic view into their system’s conformance with the CIS Benchmarks and how it maps to the CIS Controls over time.

 

The CIS Benchmarks program is a trusted, independent authority that facilitates the collaboration of public and private industry experts to achieve consensus on practical and actionable solutions. CIS Benchmarks are recommended as industry-accepted system hardening standards and are used by organizations in meeting compliance requirements for Federal Information Security Management Act, PCI, Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act and other security requirements.

 

Helion's Nachbahr, along with several other Helion team members, have also secured Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certifications. The CISSP is an independent security certification granted by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC).
