National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53


NIST SP 800-53 is shorthand for the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53, Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organization. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a U.S. federal agency that establishes computer- and information technology-related standards and guidelines for federal agencies to use.

NIST SP 800-53 guidelines apply to any component of a system that stores, processes or transmits federal information. It provides a catalog of controls -- operational, technical, and management safeguards used by information systems to maintain the integrity, confidentiality, and security of federal information systems.

Although this framework was designed for governmental agencies, it can help organizations in all industries improve the security of their organization’s information systems by providing a fundamental baseline for developing a secure organizational infrastructure. In many cases, complying with NIST guidelines and recommendations will help organizations ensure compliance with other regulations, such as HIPAA, FISMA, or SOX.
