  • SANS Top20 critical Security Control-SANS controls are mapped to NIST controls
  • The security controls selected is termed System Security Control Baseline. This is usual in a form of a spread sheet.
  • The security controls (e.g., AC-2) prescribe specific security-related activities or actions to be carried out by organizations or by information systems.
