Default umask 007

Hi all, i tried to follow instruction to make an hardening on CentOs 5.1 with Bastille.
In the tutorial is suggested to set the umask as 007. Can please somebody explain me the advantages setting this umask in this way please?
If i understood it's work so:

if a file have permission like 0777, with the umask 007 i have back a permission like 770.... right?

If so... why it's suggested to set umask in this way?
Thanks a lot.
