My suggested answer is B. The result of risk assessment.

Wentz’s book, The Effective CISSP: Security and Risk Management, helps CISSP and CISM aspirants build a solid conceptual security model. It is a tutorial for information security and a supplement to the official study guides for the CISSP and CISM exams and an informative reference for security professionals.


The first step in the NIST RMF, Categorize System, determines the impact level of the system by evaluating the high watermark of the information types processed by the system so that a set of baseline controls is selected and tailored or modified based on system-specific requirements, as a result of risk assessment.

Information security policy is crucial and high-level. It doesn’t have detailed or specific requirements that direct tailoring security controls.
