CP-8(2): Single Points of Failure
- NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 4:
- CP-8(2): Single Points Of Failure
Obtain alternate telecommunications services to reduce the likelihood of sharing a single point of failure with primary telecommunications services.
In certain circumstances, telecommunications service providers or services may share the same physical lines, which increases the vulnerability of a single failure point. It is important to have provider transparency for the actual physical transmission capability for telecommunication services.
