Control Overlay Repository


The NIST Security and Privacy Control Overlay Repository (SCOR), formerly the Security Control Overlay Repository, provides stakeholders a platform for voluntarily sharing control overlays created by subject matter experts to help reduce the duplication of effort and share best practices for the information security and privacy community.

SCOR is organized into categories of overlays based on the submitting organization: 

Government-wide Overlay submissions from federal, state, tribal, and local governments.
Public Overlay submissions from commercial, educational, or non-profit organizations.
NIST Overlays developed by NIST.
