Xacta® Compliance Campaign Manager™ and
Xacta® Compliance Campaign Manager™
and the Xacta IA Manager Suite
Xacta CCM works with the Xacta IA Manager
suite to empower you to:
•Create and distribute OCIL-based surveys and
questionnaires for manual security checks
•Enforce the controls you need with content for
the NIST Risk Management Framework
•Achieve 100% Test Plan coverage by directing
non-automatable controls or questions to the
responsible process participants
Xacta CCM is a key element of the Xacta IA Manager
security risk management suite, which enables
agencies and organizations to automate and
streamline all aspects of cybersecurity frameworks
such as the NIST Risk Management Framework
(RMF) and the Cybersecurity Framework for
critical infrastructure (Executive Order 13636).
The core components of the Xacta IA Manager
suite are Xacta Assessment Engine, Xacta CCM,
and Xacta Continuum. Working together, these
components offer an unmatched capability for
identifying, analyzing, and managing risk.
Xacta CCM and the NIST RMF
Xacta IA Manager supports the management of the
NIST RMF from Categorize to Select, Implement,
Assess, Authorize, and Monitor. Xacta CCM works
with Xacta IA Manager to address the Assess
and Monitor steps of the RMF in automating
the risk management process and enabling the
organization to manage and track compliance
with the controls that govern system risk:
In the Assess step, organizations perform tests
(interview, observe, examine) to determine if they
are in compliance with an associated control.
Additionally, the Monitor step is where
organizations keep a constant eye on compliance
with the controls tested in the Assess step.
With Xacta CCM, both steps are automated and
streamlined. The diagram below shows the role of
Xacta CCM working with Xacta IA Manager in the
overall RMF process.

Xacta CCM and Xacta Assessment Engine Work Together for Compliance Management
Xacta IA Manager is a browser-based suite of tools for security risk management and continuous compliance. Xacta
CCM works in concert with Xacta Assessment Engine to ensure that information used in compliance management
campaigns is always current and that assessment test plans are always up to date with the latest compliance status.
