NIST SP 800-53 is a collection of security controls and assessment procedures that both U.S. Federal and non-governmental organizations can apply to their information systems, policies, and procedures. Based upon the environment’s assessed impact level, prescribed controls can and should be implemented to protect the integrity of the organization’s information systems.
The goal is to protect organizational operations, assets, and individuals from a diverse set of threats including: hostile cyber attacks, natural disasters, structural failures, and human errors.
