Introduction to Risk Management Framework (RMF) Training | RMF Training offered by Enoinstitute. Learn about DoD Information Technology in-depth DoD RMF basics. Enoinstitute offers a series of Risk Management Framework (RMF) for DoD Information Technology in-depth DoD RMF basics.

Introduction to Risk Management Framework Training teaches you the concepts and principles of risk management framework (RMF) which is a replacement for the traditional cybersecurity risk management framework methodology, DIACAP. The RMF training course covers a variety of topics in the RMF area such as the basics of RMF, RMF laws, RMF regulations, introduction to FISMA, updated FISMA regulations, RMF roles and responsibilities, FIPS, and NIST publications. Moreover, you will be introduced to step-by-step procedures for RMF, system development life cycle (SDLC), the transition from certification and accreditation (C&A) to RMF, RMF expansion, security control assessment requirements, and RMF for information technology.

The RMF training course helps you to implement the risk management framework for your IT system based on recent updates on DoD, NIST, and FISMA publications. The introduction to RMF training compares different aspects of traditional C&A with RMF for categorizing information systems, selecting and implementing security control, and establishing a monitoring process. Learn about the different roles and responsibilities in RMF which helps you to understand different aspects of RMF and look for the right person in case of vulnerabilities.

By taking an introduction to RMF, you will follow the recent requirements of FISMA for mobile devices, security incident reporting, and protecting agency information. The Introduction to Risk Management Framework Training is an interactive course with a lot of class discussions and exercises aiming to provide you with a useful resource for RMF implementation in your information technology system. If you are a government or contractor personnel and need to understand and implement a new risk management framework or validate your RMF skills, you will benefit from the presentations, examples, case studies, discussions, and individual activities upon the completion of the Introduction to Risk Management Framework Training and will prepare yourself for your career.
