  • Purpose of the Secure Controls Framework is to have a single framework to address multiple requirements. It’s a meta-framework that takes into consideration the controls of all other frameworks.
  • You only need to use the security controls that are important and relevant to you. For that reason, don’t be daunted by the number of controls on SCF (currently 750).
  • You can have security without privacy, but you can’t have privacy without security. Integrating privacy and security is critical to SCF.
