Depending on the level of assessment conducted, NIST SP 800-53A defines the following three types of interview:
◦ Abbreviated - Informal, ad hoc interviews that consist of generalized, high-level discussions with selected organizational personnel on particular topics relating to the specifications, mechanisms, or activities associated with the security control being assessed

◦ Substantial - Informal, structured interviews that consist of generalized, high-level discussions and specific discussions in targeted areas with selected organizational personnel on particular topics relating to the specifications, mechanisms, or activities associated with the security control being assessed

◦ Comprehensive - Formal, structured interviews that consist of generalized, high-level discussions and specific, in-depth discussions with selected organizational personnel on particular topics relating to the specifications, mechanisms, or activities associated with the security control being assessed
