Security Standards, Baselines, and Guidelines

The security standards, baselines, and guidelines are constructed on the documentation from the security policies. This documentation is more specific and goes more in depth.


A standard defines obligatory requirements for the use of hardware, software, technology, and security controls. This allows personnel in an organization to follow a course of action by which technology and procedures are uniformly implemented.


A baselines is a minimum level of security that all assets in an organization must meet. Essentially it is a rule set forward that all implemented assets must meet that minimum level and if not met should be removed until brought up to baseline.


A guideline is a recommendation on how standards and baselines are implemented and serves as an operational guide for the organization.
