NISP eMASS DAAPM DCSA | Guidance on the SLCM Fields Within the “ControlInfoExport” Spreadsheet

DCSA personnel will want to gain a strong understanding of an organization’s continuous monitoring initiatives, which means cleared contractors need to have in place a documented and formalized continuous monitoring program (ConMon).  Per a recent presentation by DCSA personnel:

  • “Continuous Monitoring (ConMon) is an important aspect of the overall security because it communicates to DCSA how controls are going to be assessed for continued effectiveness over time.”
  • “ConMon strategies should include details related to steps that “will be” taken by the defined frequency to check on controls.”

Therefore, a well-developed ConMon program should include the following:

  • Control Number Listing
  • Control Title
  • Security Control Designation
  • Continuous Monitoring Program Frequency
  • Continuous Monitoring Strategy
  • Listing of Tools Used for Verification
  • Listing of Personnel Responsible for Performing ConMon Tests
  • A Detailed Test Schedule
