NIST releases draft revision of Special Publication 800-53

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has issued a draft revision of its Special Publication 800-53, Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations.

The revision was developed by a joint task force from the civil, defense and intelligence communities, the NIST news release states, and “represents an ongoing effort to produce a unified information security framework for the federal government.” NIST Fellow and Team Leader Ron Ross said the new revision “takes the guidance in new directions — we are crafting the next-generation catalog of controls that can also be applied to secure the internet of things.” NIST Senior Privacy Policy Advisor Naomi Lefkovitz said, “This revision covers the overlap in security and privacy for systems, as well as the ways in which they are distinct. It also enhances the ability for both professional teams to collaborate yet still maintain their respective authorities.”
