Implementing 2019 FISMA and Federal Cybersecurity Changes Training

This event qualifies for 11 CPEs

This event qualifies for 11 PDUs PMI

If you work for a Federal Agency, the Military, or supporting contractor organization, this 2-day non-technical training seminar will cover all the recently released Cyber Policy and Regulations covering the concepts, processes, solutions, templates, and strategies to help you meet all the FISMA and related cybersecurity requirements.


In May 11, 2017, Presidential Executive Order (PEO) on Strengthening the Cybersecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure instructed each agency to “use The Cyber Security Framework” developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in an attempt to improve Risk Management.  On May 19, 2017 OMB issued M-17-25 outlining a number of actions to enhance cybersecurity across federal agencies.  NIST is also in process of updating both the Risk Management Framework (RMF – SP800-37, Rev 2) and System and Privacy Control Catalog (SP800-53, Rev 5) guidance.  With all this new information and proposed changes, what will you be required to implement to your existing documents and procedures?  This seminar will put these developments into perspective and provide effective strategies for complying with the changes.


Additionally, this training seminar will identify new opportunities for innovative processes, controls, products and services necessary to support these Presidential and NIST changes.
