The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-53 provides guidance for the selection of security and privacy controls for federal information systems and organizations. Revision 4 was motivated principally by the expanding threat space and increasing sophistication of cyber attacks. It is the most comprehensive update since the initial publication. NIST 800-53 is the authoritative security control catalog for the federal government and is also a free resource for private sector businesses.
Revision 4 represents enormous change, including the introduction of many new controls and an entire new control family – privacy. The concept of overlays, also introduced in this revision, is borrowed from the intelligence community to protect the world’s most sensitive systems. So, what does this mean to you?
This webcast will help you understand the changes to NIST 800-53 Rev 4, and how to integrate them to improve the cyber security of your organization.
