Re: Security Program: NIST, ISO, other?

We had already a comprehensive IS policy in place that was modeled after ISO 27001/2, but our QSA never mentioned that 
an industry standard such as PCIDSS would be a good model for a university IS policy.
Personally, if you got nothing to start with, I suppose using PCIDSS is a start, but I would be hesitant to model a 
general IS policy for a higher education institution after a rather narrowly defined set of industry security standards.

When we were conducting a gap analysis for PCI-DSS, our QSA recommended that we adopt the 12 PCI standards as our 
overriding security policy.  Has anyone had similar advice or considered doing this?

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
