RMF in Federal Departments and Agencies

For several years now, most federal “civil” departments and agencies have been utilizing NIST methodology for Certification and Accreditation of their information systems. RMF is being implemented in these organizations by adoption of the most recent revisions to the key NIST publications:

Federal departments and agencies also utilize NIST publications for guidance on development of Security Plans (NIST SP 800-18 ), Risk Assessments (NIST SP 800-30 ), Contingency Plans (NIST SP 800-34 ), etc.

BAI provides the RMF for Federal Agencies training program (formerly known as the FISMA RMF training program) to support organizations seeking to achieve and maintain security authorization and FISMA compliance of their systems. BAI also offers consulting services to assist agencies and their supporting contractors in RMF implementation
