Microsoft has published its first Azure Security Benchmark v1 (ASB). ASB inlcudes over 90 security best practice recommendations you can employ to increase the overall security and compliance of all your workloads in Azure.
The ASB controls are based on industry standards and best practices, such as Center for Internet Security (CIS) and NIST.
ASB includes the following control categories:
Logging and monitoring
Identity and access control
Inventory and asset management
Penetration tests and red team exercises
ASB is integrated with Azure Security Center allowing you to track, report, and assess your compliance against the benchmark by using the Security Center compliance dashboard.
You can find the full set of controls and the recommendations at the Azure Security Benchmark website.
