New to POA&Ms… – help!

I recently started a new security role (incident response) with a major non-DoD agency and one of my main priorities has been to maintain the POA&M of findings that need remediating.

There’s is an existing POA&M that has been tracked in an internal SharePoint site (that I don’t yet have access to), and from what I’ve been told, the original manager(s) of the POA&M are long gone and it hasn’t been updated or used in six+ months.

This is my first jump into the federal sector of any sort, but not cyber security (10+ years). I’m “basically” familiar with the POA&M concept basically being an audit and track function, but that’s about it.

I’m reading through everything here but if anyone has any recommendations on “back to basics”, or anything else you think may be helpful…. I’m all ears!
