NIST SP 800 introduces the concept of security control baselines as a starting point for the security control selection process. These baselines outline a number of key considerations like operational and functional needs as well as the most common types of threats facing information systems. A tailoring process is outlined to help organizations select only those controls appropriate to the requirements of the information systems in use within their environment.
