Risk Management Framework Training, RMF

Risk Management Framework Training, Risk Management Framework (RMF) for DoD Information Technology (IT) training courses, will cover the new DoD authorization process as required by DoDI 8510.01, Risk Management Framework for DoD IT.

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Risk Management Framework (RMF) is aligned with Committee of National Security Systems Instruction 1253 (CNSSI 1253), Security Categorization and Security Control Selection for National Security Systems (NSS).

TONEX as a leader in cybersecurity industry for more than 20 years is now announcing the introduction to RMF training which helps you to understand the RMF process, FISMA and NIST processes for authorizing federal IT systems, DoD Information Technology and the key roles and responsibilities of RMF, and apply these principles to real-world activities and situations.

Information Technology and Information Assurance are key operating principles at all governmental agencies and DoD. Although information technology has brought a great improvement to these agencies, they present vulnerabilities as well as threats which can adversely affect these organizations operation. To protect these organizations from threats, the cybersecurity policies have been updated and risk management framework has been introduced. This training covers the fundamental steps for risk management framework and provided you with the step by step RMF procedure to protect your organization from vulnerabilities.

TONEX has served the industry and academia with high quality conferences, seminars, workshops, and exclusively designed courses in cybersecurity area and is pleased to inform professional fellows about the recent comprehensive training on introduction to RMF.

Learn about the Department of Defense new adopted framework and tools needed to utilize Cybersecurity Risk Management Framework (RMF) methodology as it replaces for DIACAP. Risk Management Framework (RMF) gives directions, assessment tools and guidance to both DoD and Committee for National Security Systems (CNSS) and replaces DoDD 8500.1, DoDI 8500.2, DoDI 8510.01, CNSSP 22, and CNSSI 1253. Risk Management Framework (RMF) will trace to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publications (SP) 800-37, 800-30, 800-39, 800-53, 800-53A, and 800-137.

Risk Management Framework Training Programs

Our risk management program is designed for all DoD employees, security professionals, federal agency’s IT and all computer security scientists who need to change their IT from certification and accreditation (C&A) to Risk Management Framework (RMF) mandated by Department of Defense (DoD) based on National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). RMF is implemented by special publications of NIST, and DoD Instructions (DoDI) for DoD IT such as ATO and PIT. Our instructors at TONEX are security professionals with years of teaching experience in industry and academia who will help you to implement the RMF or maintain the security of your organization. We offer variety of courses in this area, a brief introduction to each course is provided below:

What is Risk Management?

According to the cost of cyber-crime studies, the average annual cost of cybercrime for organizations is 11.6 million dollars per year which is a massive amount. As a manager, or a professional in an organization, you understand that any disruption to your information system can hamper the operation, slow down the supply chain, impact the reputation of the organization and intellectual property. It is vital for anyone to protect the information system from cyber threats by applying risk management concepts.

Key Concepts in Risk Management?

Here are some hints for risk management key concepts,

  • First of all, the cyber risks should be incorporated into existing risk management and governance process in order to move the risks to an ongoing and acceptable level.
  • Next step is to begin cyber risk management discussions with managing team in order to enhance your awareness of current risks affecting your organization.
  • Then, specific cyber risk should be evaluated and managed. This step is to identify critical assets and associated impacts from cyber threats in order to understand the organization’s potential exposure.
  • Next step is to provide oversight and review cybersecurity budgets, IT acquisition plans, IT outsourcing, cloud services and incident reports.
  • Next move is to develop and test incident response plans in order to have a plan B in case cyber incident happens
  • The results from incident response planning may be coordinated across the enterprise and cyber threats maybe be maintained aware by proper planning.

Risk Management Framework

Risk Management Framework Steps:

Below is the summary of risk management framework for DoD related organizations:

  1. Categorizing the Information System based on FIPS 199 and NIST SP 800-60
  2. Selecting the Security controls based on FIPS 200 and NIST 800-53
  3. Implementing the security controls based on NIST SP 800-70
  4. Assessing the security controls based on NIST SP 800-53A
  5. Authorizing the information system based on NIST SP 800-37
  6. Monitoring the security controls based on NIST SP 800-37 and NIST SP 800-53A
