In this benefits overview paper we outline Noblis’ RunCyberAssurance solution and how it can improve the Continuous Monitoring workflow for federal agencies while maintaining alignment with cybersecurity compliance standards.
Maintaining the security of federal computing environments, whether on government networks or in the cloud, is an increasingly high-stakes challenge. Mandatory cybersecurity compliance standards and frameworks, such as those defined by the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), include Continuous Monitoring (ConMon) as a key activity. To implement a successful ConMon program, agencies must typically define and implement an agency-specific process that satisfies the FISMA requirements in their unique environment, and then must capture, decipher, analyze and store a myriad of ConMon data, often with limited automation. As a result, many agencies struggle to manage their ConMon efforts.
Noblis’ RunCyberAssurance is a dynamic, robust network intelligence platform for ConMon. It significantly eases the burden faced by agencies in maintaining alignment with federal cybersecurity compliance standards. Its proven automation approach offers a fast, accurate view into the vulnerability and security posture of complex networked information systems, freeing cybersecurity professionals from mundane manual tasks and allowing them to focus on high-value threat assessment activities. Agencies can leverage RunCyberAssurance as software-as-a-service (SaaS) or a customer-managed solution, and any agency that follows a Risk Management Framework such as FedRAMP can use it to improve its ConMon process.
