SAM-CIS Controls is designed as a CIS Controls Version 7 management tool and is based around the five NIST Cybersecurity Framework functions that define different areas of Cyber Security management.

Protect - Provide protection from known vulnerabilities and threats
Detect - Ascertain current vulnerabilities and threats
Respond - Manage your ability to mitigate vulnerabilities and threats
Recover - Be able to return to a known operational state when required

The SAM-CIS Controls Dashboard utilises the NIST Cybersecurity Framework function descriptions and enables your organisation to ascdertain compliance with these functional areas as well as the individual CIS Controls.
