RMF steps for getting an Authorization
Computer Defense Force’s extensive industry expertise enables you to stay on top of the RMF process and changes with little to no effort.  We take the stress of all the changes off of your shoulders and keep up with them for you.

RMF STEP 1: Categorize Information System

The Information System Owner assigns a security role to the new IT system based on mission and business objectives. The security role must be consistent with the organization’s risk management strategy.

VIBE is able to assist you in quickly identifying your Information Types and producing the relevant Artifacts you need to continue through the RMF process.

RMF STEP 2: Select Security Controls

The security controls for the project are selected and approved by leadership from the common controls, and supplemented by hybrid or system-specific controls. Security controls are the hardware, software, and technical processes required to fulfill the minimum assurance requirements as stated in the risk assessment. Additionally, the agency must develop plans for continuous monitoring of the new system during this step.

VIBE makes selecting your Controls as easy as a SNAP and creates the artifacts you need to complete this step and move to Implementing your Security Controls.

RMF STEP 3: Implement Security Controls

Simply put, put step 2 into action. By the end of this step, the agency should have documented and proven that they have achieved the minimum assurance requirements and demonstrated the correct use of information system and security engineering methodologies.

Make Implementing your Security Controls easy by using VIBEs built in and customized features designed to Implement all your security controls quickly and easily.  During Implementation VIBE also assists with building all of your Plans and Policies through our custom plan and policy builder.

RMF STEP 4: Assess Security Control

An independent assessor reviews and approves the security controls as implemented in step 3. If necessary, the agency will need to address and remediate any weaknesses or deficiencies the assessor finds and then documents the security plan accordingly.

VIBE makes it easy to assess your security Controls through automated and non automated means.  We have taken the best minds in RMF Authorization and and grouped the test cases into an easy to understand Turbo Tax like format that makes Assessing your security Controls a SNAP.

RMF STEP 5: Authorize Information System

The agency must present an authorization package for risk assessment and risk determination. The authorizing agent then submits the authorization decision to all necessary parties.

Let VIBE take the worry off your shoulders just use our easy export function to export all of your RMF artifacts out of VIBE so that you can use them as artifacts in your Authorization Process.

RMF STEP 6: Monitor Security Controls

The agency continues to monitor the current security controls and update security controls based on changes to the system or the environment. The agency regularly reports on the security status of the system and remediates any weaknesses as necessary.

VIBE has a built in out of the box Administrative Monitoring process so you never get behind on your packages again.  Simply updated the items that are required when they are required and VIBE will provide you with all the updates to your artifacts for easy tracking and remediation.
