NIST AI RMF 1.0: Artificial Intelligence Risk Management
This download includes the NIST Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework (AI RMF 1.0) with no mapped questions. Use this content if you just need an authority and want to create your own question-set.
The goal of the AI RMF is to offer a resource to the organizations designing, developing, deploying, or using AI systems to help manage the many risks of AI and promote trustworthy and responsible development and use of AI systems.
The Framework is intended to be voluntary, rights-preserving, non-sector-specific, and use-case agnostic, providing flexibility to organizations of all sizes and in all sectors and throughout society to implement the approaches in the Framework.
The Framework is designed to equip organizations and individuals – referred to here as AI actors – with approaches that increase the trustworthiness of AI systems, and to help foster the responsible design, development, deployment, and use of AI systems over time. AI actors are defined by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) as “those who play an active role in the AI system lifecycle, including organizations and individuals that deploy or operate AI”.
The AI RMF is intended to be practical, to adapt to the AI landscape as AI technologies continue to develop, and to be operationalized by organizations in varying degrees and capacities so society can benefit from AI while also being protected from its potential harms.
This content comprises the “Core” of the Framework. It describes four specific functions to help organizations address the risks of AI systems in practice.
These functions – GOVERN, MAP, MEASURE, and MANAGE – are broken down further into categories and subcategories.
While GOVERN applies to all stages of organizations’ AI risk management processes and procedures, the MAP, MEASURE, and MANAGE functions can be applied in AI system-specific contexts and at specific stages of the AI lifecycle.
