ControlMap now supports the NIST AI Risk Management Framework, enabling MSPs to support cybersecurity programs related to AI.

What is NIST AI RMF?

The NIST AI Risk Management Framework (AI RMF) is a security standard developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to help manage the risk of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI). It was developed through a transparent, collaborative process and released in 2023. 

The framework is designed to help organizations involved in the design, development, use, or regulation of AI technologies, to better manage risks associated with AI as well as incorporate trustworthiness into AI products. 

NIST AI RMF is intended for voluntary use. It aims to align with and build upon AI risk management efforts already in place.

The benefits of NIST AI RMF

NIST AI RMF aims to help organizations manage risks associated with AI through a proactive and ethical approach. Organizations that implement this framework get the following benefits:

  • Guidance on AI Governance

The framework offers detailed guidance on establishing robust governance practices for AI deployments. This helps organizations create clear policies and procedures that govern AI use, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and alignment with business objectives.

  • Improved Risk Management

By adopting the NIST AI RMF, organizations can better identify, assess, manage, and monitor risks associated with AI technologies. This structured approach allows for more proactive risk management, reducing the potential for adverse impacts on the organization or any of its stakeholders.

  • Enhanced Trustworthiness

NIST AI RMF helps organizations ensure their AI systems are reliable and trustworthy by providing a framework that emphasizes accountability, transparency, and the ethical use of AI. This can lead to increased user confidence and a stronger reputation for organizations deploying compliant AI solutions.
