STIG Compliance Series: Security Readiness Reviews

Security Readiness Reviews (SRR) taught by DISA RCP certified Reviewers. Technologists teaching technologists.

A Security Readiness Review (SRR) targets conditions that undermine the integrity of security, contribute to inefficient security operations and administration, or may lead to interruption of production operations. Additionally, the review ensures the site has properly installed and implemented the database environment and that it is being managed in a way that is secure, efficient, and effective.

At Cinteot, we believe technology is taught best by the people who use it every day.  Courses in Cinteot’s Security Readiness Review Series are taught by Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Certified Reviewers.  These instructors are the same folks who perform Command Cyber Readiness Inspections (CCRIs), Certification and Accreditation (C&A), and Risk Management Framework (RMF) Assessment and Acceptance (A&A) inspections for DISA.  In these courses, you’ll learn to look at your system the same way a reviewer does.

SRR Training Methodology

Cinteot’s Security Readiness Review (SRR) training courses employ the DoD Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) as their main course material.  Cinteot provides virtual machines containing a partially secure version of the software being reviewed.  The instructor-led class includes a walkthrough of each check within the relevant STIGs and class discussion as to whether the check would be considered a Finding by a DISA RCP Certified reviewer. This process enables technologists to understand and anticipate how their systems/technologies will be viewed by a reviewer performing a DISA-sanctioned CCRI, C&A, or RMF audit.


Cinteot currently trains all SRR technologies to DISA in addition to other DoD reviewers and technologists responsible for securing DoD and DoD-contractor programs world-wide. Cinteot currently provides Cybersecurity and/or Risk Management Framework services to multiple DoD entities including the Secretary of Defense Communication Office and the U.S. Airforce’s Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (Minuteman III).  Cinteot performs over 800 individual technology SRRs annually to entities DoD-wide and provides unspecified cybersecurity to the Intelligence Community.
