Customized Solutions for RMF Compliance

We recognize that while the overarching rules of RMF A&A are similar for every system, your needs vary based upon your organization’s priorities and requirements. We create customized solutions and policies to communicate your organization’s infrastructure and challenges, along with how you’re mitigating your risk.

We have extensive experience with enclaves such as SIPRNet, NIPRNet, and Classified WANs (CWAN) will partner with you to identify and manage the unique requirements of these networks.

When pursuing a DoD ATO, we can help you navigate the complexities and questions you’ll face by making informed decisions that enhance security across your organization.

What is Risk Management Framework (RMF)?

At its core, the Risk Management Framework (RMF) determines how Department of Defense (DoD) agencies and their contractors must protect and secure their assets. Initially developed by the National Institute of Standards (NIST), this six-step process continues to change and evolve to help organizations improve their security posture on their path to attaining their Authority to Operate (ATO).

The Six-Step RMF Process

Our experience with DoD RMF and DCSA RMF compliance gives you the guidance you need to navigate every stage of the process. From standing up new systems to monitoring your ongoing risk, we’re here to proactively manage your data security on your path to RMF compliance.

  1. Categorize the System

    This occurs in conjunction with the governing body or agency who is issuing the ATO (DCSA or DISA).

  2. Select Controls

    Based on the categorization of the system by the government agency, we will select specific sets of controls.

  3. Implement Controls

    This includes defining system boundaries, drafting interconnection agreements, registering systems (eMASS, Xacta, other), and articulating and designating security controls for enclaves, systems, and applications.

  4. Assess Controls

    Our team will assess the effectiveness of the security controls in place with a Security Test and Evaluation (ST&E) and Security Assessment Report (SAR). In addition, we’ll create a Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&Ms) as required and draft documents for the Security Control Assessor (SCA) and Authorization Official (AO).

  5. Authorize System

    We’re here to support your team during the authorization process with updates and changes as required by the AO during your review to receive your Authority to Operate.

  6. Monitor Controls

    As required by your system and ATO, we’ll work you’re your team to manage the weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual monitoring as required by your system and ATO.
