RMF Training Coming Back to Pensacola Florida

From May 7 – 10, 2018, IT Dojo will be bringing RMF for DoD IT training to Pensacola, FL!  Our last course that ran there a few months ago was in such high demand that we decided to come back!  This instructor-led course will get you up to speed on what to expect as you trudge your way through the RMF process.

The first day of this course provides an overview of information security and risk management and proceeds to a high-level view of RMF for DoD IT. Discussion is centered on RMF for DoD IT policies, roles and responsibilities, along with key publications from the National institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS). The class includes high-level discussion of the RMF for DoD IT “life cycle”, including security authorization (aka. certification and accreditation), along with the RMF documentation package and NIST security controls.

The remaining three days of this course expand on the topics above at a level of detail that enables practitioners to immediately apply the training to their daily work. Each student will gain an in depth knowledge of the relevant DoD, NIST and CNSS publications along with the practical guidance needed to implement them in the work environment. Each life cycle activity in the DoD Instruction 8510.01 (RMF for DoD IT) is covered in detail, as is each component of the corresponding documentation package. NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-53 Security Controls, along with corresponding assessment procedures, are covered in detail, as are CNSS Instruction 1253 “enhancements”. Specific attention is paid to the process of transition from DIACAP to RMF, as well as the application of the eMASS tool to various aspects of the RMF life cycle.

“Class participation” exercises and collaboration reinforce key concepts.
