Demonstrating how the  NIST Cybersecurity Framework  can be aligned with the RMF and implemented using established NIST risk management processes;

Integrating privacy risk management processes into the RMF to better support the privacy protection needs for which privacy programs are responsible;

Promoting the development of trustworthy secure software and systems by aligning life cycle-based systems engineering processes in  NIST SP 800-160 Volume 1 ;

Integrating security-related, supply chain risk management (SCRM) concepts into the RMF to address untrustworthy suppliers, insertion of counterfeits, tampering, unauthorized production, theft, insertion of malicious code, and poor manufacturing and development practices throughout the SDLC; and

Allowing for an organization-generated control selection approach to complement the traditional baseline control selection approach and support the use of the consolidated security and privacy control catalog in  NIST SP 800-53 Revision 5 .
