In NIST 800-53 Revision 5, the maintenance control family focuses on establishing processes and procedures for the effective and secure maintenance of information systems and associated components. The controls in this family aim to ensure that systems are properly maintained, vulnerabilities are promptly addressed, and changes to systems are managed in a controlled manner.
These controls help organizations ensure that maintenance activities are performed securely, minimizing risks to the system's availability, integrity, and confidentiality. By implementing these controls, organizations can establish a disciplined approach to maintenance, address vulnerabilities promptly, and maintain the overall security posture of their information systems.
