Assessment Procedures for Security and Privacy Controls
Initial Public Draft: March 2019
Final Public Draft: June 2019
Final Publication: September 2019

There are 6 major objectives for this update—
-Making the security and privacy controls more outcome-based by changing the structure of the controls;

-Fully integrating the privacy controls into the security control catalog creating a consolidated and unified set of controls for information systems and organizations

-Separating the control selection process from the actual controls: systems engineers, software developers, enterprise architects; and mission/business owners

-Promoting integration with different risk management and cybersecurity approaches and lexicons, including the Cybersecurity Framework

-Clarifying the relationship between security and privacy to improve the selection of controls necessary to address the full scope of security and privacy risks
