Risk Management Framework (RMF)

The Risk Management Framework (RMF) is the process that must be followed to secure, authorize and manage federal information systems. The RMF uses a risk-based approach to selecting security controls. NIST SP 800-37 defines the RMF as a 6-step process to assess and authorize information systems. The RMF uses the following documents:

  • NIST SP 800-37 (Risk Management Framework for Information Systems and Organizations: A System Life Cycle Approach for Security and Privacy)
  • NIST SP 800-30 (Guide for Conducting Risk Assessments)
  • NIST SP 800-53 ( Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations)
  • NIST SP 800-53A (Assessing Security and Privacy Controls in Federal Information Systems and Organizations: Building Effective Assessment Plans)
  • NIST SP 800-137 (Information Security Continuous Monitoring (ISCM) for Federal Information Systems and Organizations)

Remedia Security has worked with numerous federal agencies to conduct RMF compliance, continuous monitoring, and reporting activities.
