Hardening Windows Devices with CIS Benchmarks

My colleague Juergen published a guide to hardening Windows using CIS (or Microsoft benchmarks) through JumpCloud's Commands. It was extremely easy to do in three steps:

1) Download the benchmark (CSV) and PS Script from the Hardening Kitty repository on Git.

2) Create your policy in JumpCloud, along with a script, and upload the two files.

3) Run it either manually or on a schedule against a / multiple device groups - once you added a device to the group, it will get the cmd run in the next schedule.

Hi @JCDavid 

Update on this - since HardeningKitty 0.9.0 is now a Powershell-Module. 
The command has to look like this: 

Import-Module C:\Windows\Temp\HardeningKitty.psm1

Invoke-HardeningKitty -FileFindingList C:\Windows\temp\finding_list_msft_security_baseline_windows_11_22h2_machine.csv -Mode Audit -Report

- Download the module from their Github
- attach the files to the Command
- Import the Module 
- Invoke whatever action is desired (in this example it's only Audit-Mode with a Report for the MSFT baseline)
