DISA Backs Mission Partners’ Security Compliance Efforts Through Risk Mgmt Service

The Defense Information Systems Agency offers risk management service packages to its mission partners as part of efforts to help them meet the agency’s security requirements.

DISA said Tuesday its Service Product packages are designed to aid the compliance of partners whose programs and systems are hosted within the agency’s Computing Ecosystem.

The service packages contain Control Correlation Identifiers, which work to help organizations assess compliance with security controls.

“We are providing mission partners options based on their requirements and elected services,” said Stephanie Watt, head of the cyber controls section in the DISA Computing Ecosystem’s cyber services business.

Watt added that the service packages work to complement the services that mission partners currently receive from the DISA Data Center and Enterprise Infrastructure Backbone Network Risk Management Framework packages.

DISA adopted the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s Risk Management Framework to incorporate security and risk management efforts into the information system development lifecycle.

The agency also built additional packages to allow partners to operate within the RMF.
