NIST SP 800-53, Revision 4, Appendix J

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-53, Revision 4, Appendix J provides a vehicle that identifies deficiencies in an agency’s privacy policies in compliance with existing privacy and information security laws and introduces privacy protection throughout the lifecycle of an information system program and project. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has adopted these privacy controls.

These controls serve as a checklist based upon laws, such as the Privacy Act of 1974, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Guidance and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) to ensure each agency is applying and complying with the laws.
