NIST Special Publication 800-53 - PM-15

Post by rbc »

I thought I'd highlight a NIST 800-53 control for those who use the NIST controls. Control PM-15 has to do with security and privacy groups/associations. Here's the primary text:

Control Statement

Establish and institutionalize contact with selected groups and associations within the security and privacy communities:
  • To facilitate ongoing security and privacy education and training for organizational personnel;
  • To maintain currency with recommended security and privacy practices, techniques, and technologies; and
  • To share current security and privacy information, including threats, vulnerabilities, and incidents.
Supplemental Guidance

Ongoing contact with security and privacy groups and associations is important in an environment of rapidly changing technologies and threats. Groups and associations include special interest groups, professional associations, forums, news groups, users' groups, and peer groups of security and privacy professionals in similar organizations. Organizations select security and privacy groups and associations based on mission and business functions. Organizations share threat, vulnerability, and incident information as well as contextual insights, compliance techniques, and privacy problems consistent with applicable laws, executive orders, directives, policies, regulations, standards, and guidelines.

You can find more information at:

If your organization uses the NIST controls, this chapter can provide artifacts to help meet the guidance of this control.
