re: NIST Security Standards: Fallacies And Pitfalls
NIST provides an important service in bringing together best recommended standards and practices. But in many ways, that amounts to specifying the types of locks that need to be on every door in a commercial building and recommendations for the guards to check the locks on routine basis. Even those that comply with those know thieves are looking for other ways in. That's one reason why DHS's recent efforts to develop a Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation approach to its systems vs just continuous monitoring represents a more holistic approach to security that deserves fuller consideration in the NIST 800-53.

The distinction between compliant and secure seems to be lost on a lot of organizations.
