RMF is the unified information security framework for the federal government that is replacing the legacy Certification and Accreditation processes within federal government departments and agencies, the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Intelligence Community (IC). RMF is an integral part of the implementation of FISMA, the Federal Information Security Management Act, and is based on publications of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS). This training program emphasizes the transition now taking place at DoD from DIACAP to RMF.


This certificate prepares students for a wide range of career levels in the area of RMF and IT security. Applying the RMF and NIST controls includes detailed implementation knowledge of RMF and NIST Security Controls. Information Security Continuous Monitoring covers roles and responsibilities, establishment and implementation of the ISCM strategy, analysis and reporting of findings, and program review in accordance with NIST Special Publications. And CRISC Review and Test Preparation will validate knowledge and experience identifying and evaluating entity-specific risk, and designing, implementing, monitoring and maintaining risk-based, efficient and effective IS controls.
