What you'll learn

Training overview

Infosec’s CAP (soon to be CGRC) Boot Camp teaches you best practices, policies and procedures used to authorize and maintain information systems. You’ll learn how to use the RMF to support your organization’s operations while complying with legal and regulatory requirements.

The CAP certification is sought after by civilian, state and local governments, as well as system integrators supporting these organizations. You’ll leave with the knowledge and skills necessary to earn your (ISC)² CAP certification, which verifies your ability to set up the formal processes used to assess risk and establish security requirements.

While the training and exam materials will remain the same, this certification will be renamed on February 15th as (ISC)² Certified in Governance, Risk and Compliance (CGRC) to better reflect its seven domains.

Before your boot camp


In order to obtain the CAP certification, you must have at least two years of paid work experience in at least one of the seven domains listed in the (ISC)² CAP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK).

However, you can become an Associate of (ISC)² by passing the exam without the required work experience.
