Risk Management Framework

Risk Management Framework  

The Risk Management Framework (RMF)  encompasses a six-step process that begins with risk categorization and ends with continuously monitoring security controls to measure effectiveness. This accreditation process provides a complex challenge to Industry and Government. 

The Challenge 

The Risk Management Framework process focuses on the documentation of risk mitigation rather than the specific technical implementation requirements. Facility Security Officers (FSOs) and Information System Security Managers (ISSMs) will need to individually assess each requirement (or security control), provide an implementation recommendation for that requirement, and a detailed explanation of how the particular control’s implementation meets each control requirement. It’s an intensive process that may come with a high bar to clear for those new to this process.
