NIST 800-53

NIST 800-53

WAS CREATED TO PROVIDE FEDERAL AGENCIES WITH A GUIDELINE FOR INFORMATION SECURITY WHICH IS REQUIRED BY THE FEDERAL INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT ACT (FISMA)

SOX requires organizations to implement security solutions. The audits exemplify an organization’s ability to  manage its internal controls with regards to securing financial data and other confidential information.

SOX compliance requires the CIA triad (confidentiality, integrity, and availability) of a publicly traded company’s data. This means keeping the data secure and preventing unauthorized changes as well as ensuring availability of financial information to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the public.
