Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations

NIST SP 800-53 provides set of security and privacy safeguarding measures for all types of computing platforms, including general purpose computing systems, cyber-physical systems, cloud systems, mobile systems, industrial control systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The controls are flexible and customizable and implemented as part of an organization-wide process to manage risk. Safeguarding measures include both security and privacy controls to protect the critical and essential operations and assets of organizations and the privacy of individuals. The objective is to make information systems more penetration resistant to attacks, limit the damage from those attacks when they occur, and make the systems resilient, survivable, and protective of individuals’ privacy. The publication controls are organized into 20 families as listed below (alphabetically). Each family contains controls that are related to the specific topic of the family.
