Comprehensive course analysis
Who should attend
DoD employees, contractors, program managers, risk professionals, IT managers, and private industry practitioners who wish to understand the Risk Management Framework.
About the course
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Risk Management Framework (RMF) provides a mechanism to inform risk decisions and improve cybersecurity. As federal government and private industry transition to RMF, a broad understanding of the entire process eases adoption challenges. Informative lectures provide in-depth knowledge concerning threat processes, risk-management concepts, and the roles defined by relevant Department of Defense (DoD), NIST, and Committee on National Security Systems publications. The six-step life cycle process is explored through presentations and hands-on exercises as attendees learn to categorize information systems, select security controls, implement controls, assess controls, authorize information systems, and monitor the security controls.
