The 20 Critical Controls are quick wins that allow you to rapidly improve your cybersecurity without major procedural or technical change. International cybersecurity experts developed the 20 Critical Controls to be the most effective and specific set of technical measures to counter the most common and damaging computer attacks. The controls address the root causes of these attacks to ensure your security measures are effective. This presentation will also discuss how VA Tech is implementing the 20 Critical Controls as part of its overall security strategy.
