RMF Procedures Overview: DoDI 8510.01 Training


RMF Procedures Overview: DoDI 8510.01 Training Course Hands-on

RMF Procedures Overview: DoDI 8510.01 training establishes the Risk Management Framework (RMF) for the Department of Defense (DoD) Information Technology (IT) for cybersecurity policies, responsibilities and risk management. RMF is a new replacement to DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) and manages the cybersecurity life cycle for DoD IT based on DoD, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) standards.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
