Updated RMF Cybersecurity Course Now Available

CDSE recently released the updated cybersecurity eLearning course “Introduction to the Risk Management Framework (RMF),” (CS124.16).  This course identifies policies and regulations that govern the DOD RMF process, and defines DOD Information Technology and the categories of DOD information affected by the RMF.  Additionally, it provides an understanding of the Seven Step Implementation process of RMF and the RMF’s applicability to the DOD Acquisition Process.
This course was updated to introduce a new RMF Prepare Step because of major changes to Policy and Guidance. It also reflects updates to information flow, content, graphics and terminology refresh to ensure alignment with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-37 Rev 2, Risk Management Framework for Information Systems and Organizations: A System Life Cycle Approach for Security and Privacy.
