NIST Special Publication 800-53A, Revision 5
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

IT Security Career Risk Management Framework

So you want to get into Information Technology? Well what do you want to do in IT because there are many different branches of it. I would suggest going into IT security, specifically, Risk Management Framework. It is a very specialized field.

You will need to know the fundamental of IT security. The basics on what goes into securing important data and their hardware. You will also need to have at least a little knowledge of technology and its history. You will need to know a LOT about NIST SP 800-37, “Guide for Applying the Risk Management Framework to Federal Information Systems”. You will need to dive into NIST SP 800-53, “Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations”.

Since not many people want to do this work, or even know about it, there is not much competition. They are always looking for qualified people to do it. What you will need is a 4 year degree (preferably in something technical), an IT certification in security (Security+, ISC2 CAP, CISSP, CASP, CISM,CISA) and a lot of knowledge on NIST 800-37.

 

Risk Management Framework NIST 800-37 Step 2: Select security controls intro

This is a quick introduction to Step 2 of the Risk Management Framework NIST 800-37 process. Step 2 involves selection of NIST Special Publication 800-53 security controls. There are (3) main tasks that you must do in this step:

1) Select the applicable baseline controls. Selection of baseline controls is based on system categorization.

2) Tailor the Security Controls to the system. Not all security controls can be used because they may break your system. And in some cases they are simply not applicable. There are also Common Controls, Hybrid controls, and system specific controls.

3) Document the Security Controls. You must document the selected security controls in a system security plan and have the security controls reviewed.
