• Requirement

    Employ a joint authorization process for the system that includes multiple authorizing officials from the same organization conducting the authorization.

  • Discussion

    Assigning multiple authorizing officials from the same organization to serve as co-authorizing officials for the system increases the level of independence in the risk-based decision-making process. It also implements the concepts of separation of duties and dual authorization as applied to the system authorization process. The intra-organization joint authorization process is most relevant for connected systems, shared systems, and systems with multiple information owners.
