Automating NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) / 800-53

  • Peter Szczepankiewicz
  • Friday, May 10th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm

Doing good Cybersecurity is so much more than inspection compliance. We've all seen it. You're 100% compliant and can still get hacked! But after decades of gathering security information from your global enterprise, measured in gross tonnage, the converse is also true. Weighed down with lakes of data, very interesting things start to happen when you view portions of your data through the lens of the NIST Risk Management Framework. You realize that there are phantom scripts running around in your network, written by our own staff. People on vacation have accounts that are somehow still actively logging in and out, from many VPNs! Your vulnerabilities, coupled with your outbound packets reveal file-less malware that doesn't use command and control. As a standard course of action, one should be detecting violations in real time, as well as searching with this lens. Come learn about specific real time correlation rules that your peers are using for NIST RMF and join in this discussion about what is working in the field. While not all of NIST RMF can be automated, what can be automated should be automated.
