Re: Security Program: NIST, ISO, other?

We do a combination of the various security best practices and standards.  We evaluate our systems using NIST 800-53, 
etc. mainly because we do a lot of research for the government and they require data security and management plans 
based on those standards.  But we run the larger program with inputs from ISO27001/2, NIST, COBIT, and even inputs from 
ITIL (or ISO 20000 if you prefer).  We map our various policies to the standards/regulations that require that policy.  
I have a matrix (partially complete) that shows that mapping if you are interested.

Subject: [SECURITY] Security Program: NIST, ISO, other?

Hello all,

At the University of Tennessee, our security program is based on the NIST 800 Series special publications rather than 
ISO 27001.  While we don't claim to implement 100% of it (it wouldn't be appropriate,) we're making heavy use of 
FIPS199, 800-37, 800-53, 800-66, etc.

I've had staff calling and emailing around asking this, but I figured I'd ask this list also: what is your school's 
security program based on?
