I know UMass’s official IS Policy is based on ISO27002, but they do use the
SANS top twenty to provide additional procedural guidance.

Not to plug SANS here, as I have no affiliation with them, has anybody
thought about using the SANS 20 Critical Controls?

I know Virginia Tech is implementing these as their guidelines and they map
out to the various NIST SP800-53 controls.

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
