What is NIST RMF?

The NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) is a comprehensive, flexible, and measurable 7-step process developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to help organizations manage information security and privacy risk. It can be applied to new or legacy systems of any type, including IoT and control systems, and works for organizations of any size or industry.

Here are some key features of the NIST RMF:

  • Risk-Based Approach: The RMF identifies and addresses risks relevant to your specific systems and information.
  • Integrates with Development Lifecycle: The RMF can be incorporated throughout the system development lifecycle, from initial planning to ongoing operation.
  • Considers Legal and Regulatory Requirements: The framework considers applicable laws, regulations, and organizational policies when selecting security controls.
  • Links to NIST Standards: The RMF utilizes a suite of NIST publications, including NIST 800-53 for security and privacy controls, to support implementation.
