This engagement helps foster a shared understanding of the Navy's requirements, local industry's capabilities and promotes competition and participation in SPAWAR contracting opportunities. To do this, we are creating the SPAWAR Industry Engagement Council (SIEC).

Risk Management Framework (RMF) Training Program


Risk management of information systems should be at the heart of every organization. For those organizations that sup-port the Federal government there are a set of risk manage-ment processes that have been developed and promulgated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). These set of processes have been defined in the Risk Manage-ment Framework (RMF) and are documented in NIST Special Publication 800-37 Rev1 "Guide for Applying the Risk Man-agement Framework to Federal Information Systems."
