] Title III of the E-Government Act, titled the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002, tasked NIST to develop (1) standards to be used by all Federal agencies to categorize information and information systems collected or maintained by or on behalf of each agency based on the objectives of providing appropriate levels of information security according to a range of risk levels; and (2) guidelines recommending the types of information and information systems to be included in each such category. Special Publication 800-60 was issued in response to the second of these tasks. Volume I contains the basic guidelines for mapping types of information and information systems to security categories. The appendices contained in Volume II include security categorization recommendations and rationale for mission-based and management and support information types.
