The Center for Internet Security (CIS) is a non-profit entity that harnesses the power of a global IT community to safeguard private and public organizations against cyber threats.

Cloudneeti is taking an editorial role to help build a much needed, foundational  benchmark for Microsoft Azure. Our intent is to bring in the core security best-practices that can be used to understand the security posture of your Azure deployment.  Like any standard, the first step is to bring together the best of the Industry professionals setting the stage for benchmark creation.

Cloudneeti takes the liberty to invite Azure cloud security and compliance professionals to help jointly build the Industry standard. We are looking for experienced general IT and Azure security professionals to come join in with other Industry experts and in turn get publicly recognized by CIS publicly at the time of benchmark release!!!
