RMF Consulting | DISA STIG Compliance | RMF Templates | Continuous Monitoring

Updated: Apr 1

For DoD cleared contractors seeking to navigate the complex landscape of the Risk Management Framework (RMF) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs), expert guidance and assistance are indispensable. At Arlington, we are trusted experts in eMASS NIST RMF advisory services, offering comprehensive support to help cleared industry achieve and maintain compliance while streamlining their RMF processes, and ultimately, earning Authorization to Operate (ATO). 

The RMF Challenge

The NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) is the comprehensive framework employed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and essentially all federal agencies to manage and mitigate security risks. Within this framework, adherence to DISA STIGs is a critical component, as these guides outline specific security measures and configurations necessary to secure information systems and networks effectively. Navigating this landscape can be daunting, particularly for DoD cleared contractors, who must meet stringent compliance requirements to maintain their security clearances and contracts.

Arlington's Specialization

Arlington specializes in providing RMF consulting services tailored to the unique needs of DoD cleared contractors. Our team of seasoned experts possesses in-depth knowledge of the RMF process within eMASS and a thorough understanding of DISA STIG compliance requirements, and those of the DCSA DAAPM. We offer a comprehensive suite of services designed to assist organizations at every stage of the RMF lifecycle.

Control Implementation

One of the primary challenges in RMF compliance within eMASS is the effective implementation of security controls. Arlington's experts work closely with clients to assess their systems, identify control gaps, and develop tailored strategies for control implementation. By addressing these gaps, we help organizations bolster their security posture and ensure compliance with NIST RMF requirements that are detailed within the eMASS NIST 800-53 control spreadsheets. 

Policies and Procedures Writing

Documentation is a fundamental aspect of RMF compliance and Arlington's team can assist you in creating and updating NIST 800-53 specific policies, procedures, and documentation required for RMF compliance. We ensure that your documentation aligns with the latest standards and guidelines, reducing the risk of non-compliance due to outdated or incomplete records. To be clear, earning ATO through DCSA within eMASS requires a laundry list of NIST 800-53 documents to be developed and implemented. It can be a time-consuming process, but not with Arlington and our industry leading Arlington Security Portal (ASP).

eMASS NIST RMF Advisory Services

The Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service (eMASS) is a crucial tool for managing the RMF process efficiently. Arlington's experts are well-versed in eMASS and can guide you through its utilization, helping you streamline your RMF workflow, track compliance milestones, and simplify reporting.

DISA STIG Compliance

Achieving and maintaining DISA STIG compliance is a critical component of RMF. Our team has a deep understanding of STIG requirements and can help you configure your systems and networks to align with these stringent guidelines, minimizing vulnerabilities and enhancing overall security.

Continuous Monitoring

RMF is not a one-time process; it requires continuous monitoring and assessment to ensure ongoing compliance and security. Arlington provides continuous monitoring solutions that help you stay ahead of emerging threats and vulnerabilities, allowing for prompt corrective actions.
