NIST RMF Information Security Policies and Procedures | Templates, Writing Services for NIST RMF Compliance
Arlington provides customized information security policies and procedures templates, toolkits, and policy writing services as required by the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) for federal contractors.
Proven Experts at NIST RMF Policy Writing
One of the most demanding, time consuming, and tedious aspects of the NIST RMF framework is authoring the large amounts of documentation necessary for earning Authorization to Operate (ATO) designation. The NIST RMF framework is essentially built on controls derived from NIST SP 800-53, the gold standard for information security. Arlington has been working with the NIST SP publications since 2002, offering unmatched expertise, quality, and efficiency in terms of developing information security policies and procedures for our valued clients all throughout North America.
What We Offer for NIST RMF Policy Writing
The current NIST SP 800-53 (revision 5) has twenty control families, and depending upon the scope of your NIST RMF requirements, organizations often find themselves writing policies for not only the top category control families, but also for many other supporting controls within these very control categories. That’s quite a bit of policy writing – to say the least – yet with Arlington, our expertise will save you an immense amount of time and money.

NIST SP 800 Driven Approach
The NIST SP 800-53 publication is without question the foremost InfoSec publication in the world. With federal agencies throughout the United States government adopting the NIST RMF, our development of information security policies and procedures is centered around NIST SP 800-53. The end result is high-quality, relevant, and compliant oriented information security policies and procedures for NIST RMF.
One-for-One Match to Control Families
NIST SP 800-53 (revision 5) has twenty control families – and numerous supporting controls for each respective control family. Therefore, it’s essential to develop policies that match and map directly to the actual control families, beginning with Access Control (AC) and ending with Supply Chain Risk Management (SR). Arlington’s policy development methodology follows a strict adherence to mapping to all NIST SP 800-53 control families.
Policy Writing for Additional Control Requirements
A significant number of control families within the NIST RMF framework require additional supporting policies to be in place. Knowing this, and knowing which policies to develop comes from years of federal compliance expertise and working with the NIST framework. Arlington can drill down and develop all primary control family policies, along with all supporting policies.
Highly Customized Policies
As a federal contractor, your business is unique to you, and so should your information security policies and procedures. Arlington uses a proven methodology for quickly and comprehensively developing highly customized NIST RMF security documentation.
Testing Plans and Programs
The NIST RMF requirements call for much more than just information security policy documents. Specifically, a number of the actual control families requires that “Programs” and “Plans” be in place for areas relating to Incident Response, Threat Awareness, Workforce Development, a Privacy Program and more. Developing such documents can be incredibly time-consuming and complex, yet with Arlington, our proven methodology saves federal contractors an immense amount of time and money.
Speed and Efficiency
