Security authorization includes a tiered risk management approach to evaluate both strategic and tactical risk across the enterprise. The authorization process incorporates the application of a Risk Management Framework (RMF), a review of the organizational structure, and the business process/mission as the foundation for the implementation and assessment of specified security controls. This authorization management process identifies vulnerabilities and security controls and determines residual risks. The residual risks are evaluated and deemed either acceptable or unacceptable. More controls must be implemented to reduce unacceptable risk. The system may be deployed only when the residual risks are acceptable to the enterprise and a satisfactory security plan is complete.
DoD 8570.1 Mandate: CGRC Certification meets
Information Assurance Management Level I II, Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and the NICE Framework.

What is the CGRC Certification:
