|Maintain an Inventory of Information Systems||Put together a detailed list of the information systems you use (including date of purchase, upgrades, and repairs) and how they interact with other systems in a network.|
|Categorize Information Systems||Classify these systems according to confidentiality, integrity, and availability, then further stratify them into low, medium, and high-risk levels to align sensitive data with the appropriate security ranking.|
|Maintain a System Security Plan||Under the legislation, organizations must create a system security plan detailing security controls and policies.|
|Utilize Security Controls||Implement security controls relevant to your objectives, risk tolerance, and operational environment, including authentication, personnel security, configuration management, incident response, and accountability.|
|Conduct Risk Assessments||Assess and validate your security controls to identify any potential gaps and weaknesses.|
|Perform Continuous Monitoring||monitor the security controls and systems for modifications and changes. Types of monitoring you will need to incorporate include configuration management, file integrity monitoring, vulnerability scanning, and log analysis.|
