Watch the September 29, 2021 C-RECS Introductory Webinar

Community Insurance Corporation (Community), along with the Wisconsin County Mutual Insurance Corporation (County Mutual), is excited to launch our Cyber-Resilience & Education Coordination Services (C-RECS) Program – a proactive cyber risk management program aimed at helping our members improve and bolster their cybersecurity programs.  

The days of cybersecurity being a concern of IT departments is an idea of the past – cybersecurity is now an organization-wide effort.

Recently, Community and the County Mutual hosted an official launch webinar on C-RECS. Speakers included Aegis Director of Client Services Josh Dirkse and Aegis Risk Management Consultant Seth Johnson.

Assessment Services
You can’t fix it until you understand what the problem is. To that end, in partnership with the Center for Internet Security (CIS), we can provide assessment assistance using their SecureSuite tools.

Specifically, CIS-CAT Pro is a configuration assessment tool and dashboard that can be used to improve your security posture.

  • CIS-CAT Pro Assessor quickly compares the configuration of target systems to CIS Benchmark recommendations and reports a conformance on a scale of 0 – 100.
  • An integrated component of CIS-CAT Pro Assessor is CIS-CAT Pro Dashboard, which allows users to view system compliance to the CIS Benchmarks over a period of time with dynamic reporting features.
  • CIS SecureSuite membership and access to its tools and programs is available at NO-COST to our members.

Consulting & Educational Services
If it’s cybersecurity-related, we are here to support our members with consultation and education aimed at all levels of knowledge. Here is a sampling of consulting and educational services that are available to you:
