Hi Bryan,

I'm happy to share what I have.  It is attached.  I haven't taken the time to map everything but a good start is there. 
 If you want any of the completed policies as a starting point for any review/creation work you might be doing, I can 
point you to what we have.

Another good place to go for mappings like this is the Cloud Security Alliance.
They have some good research and tools in this area that it is nice to not have to replicate:
      https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/
They created a set of controls for cloud services and mapped them to all the major security standards (ISO, NIST, 
COBIT, more):
     https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/research/ccm/
They then took the controls and created a list if Y/N questions to help people evaluate them:
     https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/research/cai/
They are also working to get companies to perform a self-assessment using this tool so that the answers to all of this 
before the customer asks:

Quinn, I am planning to map our policies to standards and regulations, if you are willing to share I would love to see 
what you have developed.

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.

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?

Thanks,
ajw
