The reason these were used as a guide for building this Toolkit is that NIST documents are referenced and used by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In fact, in the Office for Civil Rights Guidance on Risk Analysis Requirements under the HIPAA Security Rule document, it states about NIST documents, “non-federal organizations may find their content valuable when developing and performing compliance activities”.

...and Job Necessity(ISO 27002:2005, 7.1.1), and restricted to assets that are owned by the hospital which have enhanced security (ISO 27002:2005, 7.1.1) (NIST, 164.312(a)(1))(ISO 27002:2005, 11.4.2). The Application Deployment policy aims to close security loop holes that appear to have been open for months before the EHR system was even deployed. There were no check on accounts when importing, and no alerts when permissions were escalated. Some of the key standards that I see as aiding in creating this policy is better change management (ISO 27002:2005, 10.1.2) (NIST, 164.308(a)(5)(ii)), operating system auditing after patching (ISO 27002:2005, 12.5.2), a better separation of development systems (ISO 27002:2005, 10.1.4)(ISO 27002:2005, 11.4.5)(ISO 27002:2005, 12.4.2), and better security on the production system (NIST, 164.312(a)(1))(NIST, 164.308(a)(5)(ii)(D)). The Routine Maintenance policy aims to take care of the loose ends that may have been missed in implementing the above two policies. Policies are typically created from situations that arise, or to document procedures. This policy is more of a procedural standard that set frequency for auditing the systems that are in place, These audits can help in uncovering employee malice(NIST, 164.312(a)(1))(ISO 27002:2005, 11.3.2), improper implementation of other standards (NIST, 164.312(b)), and can aid in proving compliance during controls audits.

Business Continuity Plan

...important employees that have key roles in their operations (NIST, 2010). Incident Recovery focuses on the set of actions that businesses will take after suffering disaster may it be natural or man-made. Its sole purpose is business preservation, meaning, how the businesses would cope and be able to operate again after a disaster occurred like loss of electricity, computer viruses, and thieves. The Incident Recovery is a just a part of BCP (NIST, 2010). Unlike BCP which focuses on how businesses will continue to operate in the midst of disasters like storms, tornados and hurricanes, the Incident Recovery focuses on how to recover from the said events and how to preserve the properties that are integral in their daily operations. The BCP carefully plans the things to make them in order to lessen the amount of damage brought by the whatever natural disaster while the Incident Recovery Plan, as what its name suggests, plans carefully how to restore and set up the business operation back to its normal condition (NIST, 2010). Developing BCP and Incident Recovery is not as simple as it may look. It involves different processes and brain storming to create and maintain these two programs. Funds also play a vital role because businesses and organizations must allocate monthly or annual funds for support. These are usually available in large business corporations and groups wherein they could afford its creation and maintenance (NIST, 2010). In summary, BCP’s main purpose......

NIST defines their mission statement as “NIST's mission is to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life.” (NIST General Information, 2014). NIST is involved in mostly every area of Information Technology from the latest Trusted Identity (Leithauser & Curran, 2012) standards formatting to the handling and processing of DNA (DNA research, 2013). In recent years the President of the United States signed a Memorandum implementing a Digital Government Strategy. The government recognizing mobile device vulnerabilities and the high risk of data loss assigned NIST to implement IDS and other security standards. In a recent Mobile Security Report published NIST highlights “As a part of the strategy, NIST was asked to......

Auditing Local Area Network

...NIST The purpose of this publication is to provide organizations with recommendations for improving the Security configuration and monitoring of their IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANs) and their devices connecting to those networks. The scope of this publication is limited to unclassified wireless networks and unclassified facilities within range of unclassified wireless networks. This publication supplements other NIST publications by consolidating and strengthening their key recommendations, and it points readers to the appropriate NIST publications for additional information (see Appendix C for the full list of references and Appendix A for a list of major security controls relevant for WLAN security). This publication does not eliminate the need to follow recommendations in other NIST publications, such as [SP800-48] and [SP800-97]. If there is a conflict between recommendations in this publication and another NIST wireless publication, the recommendation in this publication takes precedence. NIST Special Publication 800-53 is part of the Special Publication 800-series that reports on the Information Technology Laboratory’s (ITL) research, guidelines, and outreach efforts in information system security, and on ITL’s activity with industry, government, and academic organizations. Specifically, NIST Special Publication 800-53 covers the steps in the Risk Management Framework that address security control selection for federal information systems in......

...Term Paper: Security Regulation Compliance Giancarlos Guerra Strayer University CIS 438 - Information Security Legal Issues Abstract: In this paper I shall provide an overview that will be delivered to senior management of regulatory requirements the agency needs to be aware of, including: i. FISMA; ii. Sarbanes-Oxley Act; iii. Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act; iv. PCI DSS; v. HIPAA; vi. Intellectual Property Law. Describe the security methods and controls that need to be implemented in order to ensure compliance with these standards and regulatory requirements. Describe the guidance provided by the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and other agencies for ensuring compliance with these standards and regulatory requirements. Term Paper: Security Regulation Compliance Introduction In the day-to-day operations of information security, security professionals often focus the majority of their time dealing with employee access issues, implementing security methods and measures, and other day-to-day tasks. They often neglect legal issues that affect information security. As a result, organizations often violate security-related regulations and often have to pay heavy fines for their non-compliance.” A Chief Information Officer in a government agency should realize the need to educate for senior leadership on some of the primary regulatory requirements, and realize the need to ensure that the employees in the......

It Didn't Have the Data

...sanitization is driven by the information placed intentionally or unintentionally on the media. Electronic media used on a system should be assumed to contain information commensurate with the security categorization of the system’s confidentiality. If not handled properly, release of these media could lead to an occurrence of unauthorized disclosure of information. Categorization of an information technology (IT) system in accordance with Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 199, Standards for Security Categorization of Federal Information and Information Systems1 , is the critical first step in understanding and managing system information and media. Based on the results of categorization, the system owner should refer to NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-53 Revision 4, Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations2 , which specifies that “the organization sanitizes information system digital media using approved equipment, techniques, and procedures. The organization tracks, documents, and verifies media sanitization and destruction actions and periodically tests sanitization equipment/procedures to ensure correct performance. The organization sanitizes or destroys information system digital media before its disposal or release for reuse outside the organization, to prevent unauthorized individuals from gaining access to and using the information contained on the media.” This document will assist organizations......
