NIST - Draft Special Publication 800-53A: Guide for Assessing the Security Controls in Federal Information Systems

The draft publication is one of a series of key standards and guidelines developed by NIST to help federal agencies improve their information technology security and comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002. Organizations can use Special Publication 800-53A to create viable assessment plans to determine the overall effectiveness of the security controls employed within organizational information systems. The guidance contained in this publication has been developed to help achieve more secure information systems within the federal government by:

(i) enabling more consistent, comparable, and repeatable assessments of security controls;
(ii) facilitating more cost-effective assessments of security control effectiveness;
(iii) promoting a better understanding of the risks to organizational operations, organizational assets, or individuals resulting from the operation of information systems; and
(iv) creating more complete, reliable, and trustworthy information for organizational officials-to support security accreditation decisions and annual FISMA reporting requirements.

NIST invites public comments on the draft guideline until 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on August 31, 2005.
