Risk Management Framework
Risk Management Framework (RMF) is a government mandated process that integrates information security and risk management activities into the system development life cycle (SDLC) to secure computers, networks, and critical IT infrastructures. This includes the technologies, tactics, and design techniques, as well as education and certification requirements to secure applications and networks in private and public sector organizations.

Tools and Technologies
Rivera Group’s cybersecurity professionals conduct a comprehensive assessment of the management, operational, and security controls employed within or inherited by an information system. We identify and evaluate all applicable controls for each assigned system by following the assessment guidelines in NIST SP 800-53A, whether it is an initial self-assessment of a system undergoing RMF authorization for the first time or a system transitioning from DIACAP to the full continuous monitoring phases of the RMF cycle.
Our RMF team conducts risk assessments by identifying internal and external threats and determining what adverse impacts could occur if those threats and vulnerabilities should materialize. We adhere to the guidelines in NIST SP 800-37 Guide for Applying the Risk
Management Framework to Federal Information Systems, which is an effective information security risk management program that requires individuals at each level of the organization understand their roles and responsibilities in providing adequate security and for managing the risk associated with the information system. Our RMF team provides our customers the reassurance their systems will meet all federal requirements to operate while still maintaining a strong level of user confidentiality, data integrity, and system availability.
