Deep Dive into Changes to the Media Protection Family in FedRAMP Revision 5

The FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) has released new proposed baselines based on NIST Special Publication 800-53, Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations, Revision 5, (NIST SP 800-53 Rev5). Here we will take a closer look at the changes to the Media Protection control family that the new baselines bring.

 

Considerable Changes to the Low, Moderate, and High baselines include:

  • Policies and procedures will now need to be designated as either organizational, mission or business process, or system-level
  • A requirement to designate a specific official to manage the development, documentation, dissemination of policies and procedures
  • A requirement to update policies and procedures after specified events
  • Additional references to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
  • New control text prohibiting the use of portable storage devices in organizational systems when such devices have no identifiable owner
