Organizations are required to employ security controls to meet security requirements derived from applicable laws, Executive Orders, directives, policies, standards, instructions, regulations, procedures or organizational mission/business case needs. The challenge for organizations is to determine the appropriate set of security controls, which if implemented and determined to be effective in their application, would most cost-effectively comply with the stated security requirements. Selecting the appropriate set of security controls to meet the specific, and sometimes unique, security requirements of an organization is an important task – a task that demonstrates the organization’s commitment to security and the due diligence exercised in protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of its information systems that are dependable in the face of threats. The National Institute for Standards & Technology endeavors to accomplish this task at a national level.
