A data-driven approach to RMF uses data automatically collected from your IT environment to streamline, automate, and inform decision-making to manage the cybersecurity risks with developing and operating your information systems. Traditional approaches focus on documenting and reviewing implementation statements along with static snapshots of technical evidence to assess if security controls are correctly implemented and operating effectively.
As a result, this creates hundreds of pages of documentation based on outdated data, and provides little actual security value. Rather than just reviewing implementation statements and taking a “trust me” approach, a data-driven approach uses the machine data (e.g. logs, configuration settings, events, transactions, etc.) that’s automatically collected from your systems so that you can continuously monitor and verify that the controls are providing the required levels of protection.
