Part of this initial assessment is to address key risk areas across DLA Global Enterprise Architecture and supply chains to look at best practices for mitigation procedures that minimize the operational risks posed from cyber threats to the DLA Global Enterprise Architecture. Following our initial assessment we will incorporate the “to be” RMF IA and C&A program across which will standardize, and centralize, the program while grounding it in Industry standards and best practices. The RMF mandated transition is already in the implementation phase and a strategy will have to managed and complied with to continue the transition through to completion. This strategy represents the DOD IT and DODI 8510.01 policy signed into effect in March 2014 aligns the DOD agencies (DLA) through the standardized use of the NIST 800-37 and 800-53 publications and the CNSSI 1253. Part of the RMF transition will see DLA migrate to the DOD’s Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service (eMASS) with the benefits being a standardized, centralized repository for all RMF products including workflow
