NIST SP 800-37 Risk Management Compliance - Talk to the Risk Experts Today

The Nation Institute, in partnership with the Department of Defense (DoD), and other notable entities, has developed a common information security framework for federal agencies, along with contractors, for which the concept of risk is an incredibly important component of it. More specifically, the Risk Management Framework (RMF) as published within NIST SP 800-37 consists of the following six step process:

  • RMF STEP 1 – CATEGORIZE INFORMATION SYSTEM: Step 1 required organizations to categorize the respective information system and document the results of the security categorization in the security plan.
  • RMF STEP 2 – SELECT SECURITY CONTROLS: Identify the security controls that are provided by the organization as common controls for organizational information systems and document the controls in a security plan (or equivalent document).
  • RMF STEP 3 – IMPLEMENT SECURITY CONTROLS: Implement the security controls specified in the security plan.
  • RMF STEP 4 – ASSESS SECURITY CONTROLS: Develop, review, and approve a plan to assess the security controls.
  • RMF STEP 5 – AUTHORIZE INFORMATION SYSTEM: Prepare the plan of action and milestones based on the findings and recommendations of the security assessment report excluding any remediation actions taken.
  • RMF STEP 6 – MONITOR SECURITY CONTROLS: Determine the security impact of proposed or actual changes to the information system and its environment of operation.

Defense Information Assurance Risk Management Framework (DIARMF) Compliance 

Please keep in mind that the concept of DIARMF and the broader concept of a risk management framework (RMF) is just that – a framework that has many moving parts, subject to changes, must be customized for an organization’s business process, and must be adaptive and scalable. As such, the basis for a comprehensive RMS is one that includes well-defined, high-quality information security policies, procedures, forms, checklists, and other supporting documentation. Additionally, undertaking an annual risk assessment along with security awareness & training for all employees is just a few of the many mandates within the broader aspect of a true RMF.  Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
