Assessment And Authorization
Assessment and Authorization (A&A) is the process of evaluating and approving the security of an information system. It involves identifying potential security risks, assessing the effectiveness of existing security controls, and developing an authorization plan to mitigate those risks. A&A is a specialized skill that requires knowledge of information security policies and regulations, as well as technical expertise in vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, and risk management. The success of A&A depends on the ability of the assessors to accurately evaluate the security posture of an organization and to provide recommendations for improvement.
