Engineer's Approach To NIST 800-53

Today we're talking about compliance and building secure IT environments. NIST SP 800-53 (Security Controls Traceability Matrix) has historically served as the foundation of US government security controls and has found widespread adoption in critical infrastructure entities and private sector organizations. As it ties together with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, it aligns with helping organizations implement controls for their systems, data, and personnel via different methods of Identifying, Protecting, Detecting, Responding, and Recovering.

I get that this type of topic is not all that exciting, so I'm going to try to provide a realistic engineering perspective that will help you understand what NIST 800-53 is and how you can use it when developing secure configuration and solutions within your environment.
