Implement the New NIST RMF and Meet 2019 FISMA Metrics Training

This event qualifies for 11 CPEs

This event qualifies for 11 PDUs PMI

Recently, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released the final Risk Management Framework (RMF) standard (SP800-37, Rev 2), an update to the Security Control Baselines (draft SP800-53, Rev 5), and a revision to the NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF).  RMF now requires an additional step, Preparation Step with 18 new Tasks, and the security control baselines families have increased from 18 to 21 to include more privacy and supply chain security control families.  The President and OMB has also increased the requirement to implement to new CSF process into the FISMA process and DHS has initiated several new activities that can be leveraged by enterprises and systems to increase the security and meet on-going authorization efforts.


All of these updates have made major changes to Federal Cybersecurity requirements that will affect government and contractor information systems and enterprises.  This seminar will identify the changes and provide strategies for effectively and quickly implementing solutions for meeting the new requirements.


The course was built on the popular 2-day Meeting FISMA Requirements course that has been taught for the past 10 years.  All exercises are new to ensure they relate to current systems and solutions use practical strategies for leveraging recent changes into meeting your individual and enterprise FISMA responsibilities.  


Bottom Line - This training seminar will make sense of all the recent changes and assist class participants in implementing the changes to successfully meet your FY19 RMF security and FISMA Metrics.
