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.
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
Categorize the System
This occurs in conjunction with the governing body or agency who is issuing the ATO (DCSA or DISA).
Based on the categorization of the system by the government agency, we will select specific sets of 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.
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).
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.
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.
