Re: Security Program: NIST, ISO, other?

The PCI DSS is a good data security standard for the protection of CHD and using PCI DSS standards in part or in whole 
to protect other high-value data (SSNs, PHI, etc.) can be useful as well.  However, it is not an actual ISMS like ISO 
27001 as it is not based on risk management driven program governance.

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
