What you'll learn

Training overview

Infosec offers the most in-depth course available for students looking to learn about the Risk Management Framework for information technology. Risk Management Framework (RMF) describes the process for identifying, implementing, assessing and managing cybersecurity capabilities and services, expressed as security controls and authorizing the operation of information technology systems.

RMF brings a risk-based approach to the implementation of cybersecurity, supports cybersecurity integration early and throughout the system life cycle, promotes reciprocity to the maximum extent possible and stresses continuous monitoring. RMF replaces the DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) and adopts the term cybersecurity in place of information assurance.

The instructor was able to take material that prior to the class had made no sense, and explained it in real world scenarios that were able to be understood.

Erik Heiss, United States Air Force


I really appreciate that our instructor was extremely knowledgeable and was able to provide the information in a way that it could be understood. He also provided valuable test-taking strategies that I know not only helped me with this exam, but will help in all exams I take in the future.

Michelle Jemmott, Pentagon


The course was extremely helpful and provided exactly what we needed to know in order to successfully navigate the exam. Without this I am not confident I would have passed.
