Configuration Guidelines

Workstations and Laptops

The scope of these procedures is limited to UTA personal computers. The benchmarks for Windows 7 and 8.1, along with Apple OSX versions 10.6, 10.8 and 10.9 have been included.

The CIS Windows Benchmarks include Level 1 and Level 1 + Bitlocker profiles. The benchmarks that are marked Level 1 + Bitlocker are applicable only if Bitlocker is utilized on the device.

The CIS Apple OSX Benchmarks include Level 1 and Level 2 profiles. The ISO requires that the Level 1 profile is implemented. The ISO requires implementation of the Level I group, but the Level II security measures can be implemented when the security of the device is the primary concern of the device owner. NOTE: the Level II security measures may negatively impact the performance or useability of the device.
