This 7-week course focuses on the Risk Management Framework (RMF) prescribed by NIST Standards.
It provides an in-depth analysis of information security and risk management, FISMA
regulations, roles, and responsibilities, and NIST RMF process steps, including
security authorization (SA). Each student will gain in-depth knowledge of the
NIST publications along with the practical guidance needed to implement them in
a work environment. The course also prepares students for the
ISC2 Certified Authorization Professional (CAP) certification.
This RMF course is suitable for employees and contractors of federal “civil” agencies as well as their supporting vendors and supporting providers. It also contains practical guidance that students can use in organizations in the private sector to better protect their operations, assets, and people.
It is more than just a course it is a program. The final week of the course is dedicated to preparing students for a career in information security/privacy and includes job search strategies, resume building, interview prep, and career growth tips.
