Chiron, does this CIS 8 guide still work the same with CIS 10?

I loved the configuration setup when I was CIS 8.4, I feel I get too many blocks or alerts in CIS 10 when I use Proactive Config and HIPS. I was just wondering if I still followed that guide would the protection be just as great or is HIPS more of a requirement now? If you ever get time in the future, is it possible for you to update it for use with CIS 10? I think a lot of users would use that setting and make CIS 10 a bit easier.

Thank you again anyway,
