For federal agencies and other entities that must adhere to compliance regulations, it can be a struggle to ensure that any software installation complies with the requirements of the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) Risk Management Framework (RMF).
Certification and Accreditation (C&A) is a defined process within the 6-Step RMF process. It ensures that all known risks are identified so that decisions can be made about whether the system should operate or not, as well as what limitations or additional controls must be used. The evaluation compares the current systems’ security posture with a specific standard (NIST RMF, DIACAP, COBIT, ISO, etc.).
Our personnel have the coveted Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) and Certification and Accreditation Professional (CAP) certs from ISC2.org. Pairing these certifications with our robust processes and procedures ensure that your Maximo concerns with C&A are addressed.
