Risk Reporter

ACR2's Risk Reporter™ (RR) deploys state of the art enterprise risk management technology to allow you to meet full FISMA requirements. The software supports SCAP vulnerability scan data imports and direct input or uploads of syslog data from perimeter security devices. Policy inputs include FISMA specific questions and enhanced reporting. The Enterprise console enables the monitoring of the FISMA compliance status of subnets or remote locations. The enterprise console allows access to real-time display of the compliance status of all active accounts as described in NIST 800-30.

Achieving FISMA Compliance

  1. Scan the computer network using an SCAP validated vulnerability scanner.
  2. Conduct a risk assessment using the NIST 800-30 protocol.
  3. Implement safeguards to protect against the risks identified during the risk assessment and SCAP vulnerability scan.

How it works - the technology

The overall ACR2 automated risk management process is shown in fig. 2. IPS and Anti-Virus data, network scan data, and policy data are input into the Risk Calculation Engine. This creates the Results Documentation Report and the Control Recommendations Report. The changes in controls are implemented and the changes are added to the risk engine, along with updated Scan and IPS/AV data. This cycle can be repeated as often as daily, with reports on demand, on schedule or on alarm.

Risk Reporter Enterprise™

The enterprise managment compliance package includes a console that allows for disttribed access and viewing of the compliance status of all of remote locations or subnets. This uses an implementation of technology developed under the sponsorship of the US Department of Homeland Security. The console allows the location to review and display the FISMA compliance status of each or all active locations that have been configured and given authorized access.
