RMF Procedures Overview, DoDI 8510.01

RMF Procedures, DoDI 8510.01 applies to all DoD Information Technology (IT) that receives, processes, stores, displays, or transmits DoD information.

The Risk Management Framework (RMF) brings a risk-based approach to implementing cybersecurity, supports cybersecurity integration early and throughout the system lifecycle, promotes reciprocity to the maximum extent possible, and stresses continuous monitoring.

Risk management is a continuous process that is accomplished throughout the life cycle of a system and should begin at the earliest stages of program planning.

It is used as the foundation of the Risk Management Framework. The approach is an organized methodology for continuously:

  • Risk Identification: identifying and measuring the unknowns;
  • Risk Mitigation: developing mitigation options;
  • Risk Mitigation Implementation: selecting, planning, and implementing appropriate risk mitigations; and
  • Risk Tracking: tracking the implementation to ensure successful risk reduction.

The goals of the Risk Management Framework, as stated by the Defense Security Service (DSS), are:

  • Improve information security
  • Strengthen risk management processes
  • Encourage reciprocity among federal agencies

The DoD RMF governance structure implements a three-tiered approach to cybersecurity risk management.

  • Tier 1 Strategic Level: Addresses risk management at the DoD enterprise level.  At this tier, the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) directs and oversees the cybersecurity risk management of DoD IT.  The Risk Executive Function is performed by the DoD Information Security Risk Management Committee (ISRMC).
  • Tier 2 Mission / Business Processes Level: At this level, the Component CIO is responsible for the administration of the RMF within the DoD Component cybersecurity program.
  • Tier 3 IS and PIT Systems Level: The DoD Component Heads are responsible for the appointment of trained and qualified Authorization Officials for all DoD ISs and PIT systems within their Component.

An important objective of the DoDI RMF process is to incorporate cybersecurity early and robustly in the acquisition and system development life cycle.

An additional key objective is to provide a risk management methodology that gives organizations a true picture of vulnerabilities caused by noncompliant controls as it relates to other risk factors (e.g., likelihood, threat, and impact).
