Where are the family of controls within eMASS derived from?
- Arlington Security Portal - Show on: Side Bar
The control requirements found within eMASS’ exportable spreadsheets come directly from the NIST SP 800-53 publication. Because of this, federal contractors working to achieve authorization designation will need to have in place comprehensive policies and procedures. To be specific, cleared contractors will need to have a large number of policies, procedures, programs, and plans in place for achieving Authorization to Operate (ATO) as part of the NISP NIST RMF A&A process within eMASS.
Over the years, developing NIST SP 800-53 specific security documents has been one of the most difficult, time-consuming, and challenging measures for cleared contractors. To help speed the up the process greatly, we developed the Arlington Security Portal (ASP), an online repository of world-class, industry leading security policies & procedures, programs, plans – and other highly essential documents & templates developed specifically on the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) 800 series of publications for information security, cybersecurity, and privacy control families.
