Kindly be reminded that the suggested answer is for your reference only. It doesn’t matter whether you have the right or wrong answer. What really matters is your reasoning process and justifications.

The audience of NIST guidelines is primarily government agencies. However, it’s also useful for enterprises to follow.

Privacy impact assessment, categorizing the E-Commerce system, assessing business impact, and ensuring the use of secure SDLC processes is at the initiation stage/phase, while scoping and tailoring security controls are at the Development/Acquisition phase.
