Risk Management Framework Procedures Overview Training

Risk Management Framework Procedures Overview Training (DoDI 8510.01) 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.

This Risk Management Framework Procedures Overview Training course covers variety of topics in RMF implementation for DoD such as: security authorization process, responsibilities in risk management framework, procedures for risk management framework, RMF step 1: categorizing information system, RMF step 2- selecting security control, RMF step 3: implementing security control, RMF step 4: assessing security control, RMF step 5: authorizing information system, RMF step 6: monitoring security controls, risk management framework governance, risk management of is and pit systems and risk management framework transition
