Course Description

This online CAP certification training is designed for the information security practitioner who champions system security commensurate with an organization’s mission and risk tolerance while meeting legal and regulatory requirements. The Certified Authorization Professional (CAP) certification training conceptually mirrors the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) system authorization process in compliance with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130, Appendix III.

Participants in this online CAP training program gain the skills needed to categorize, implement, authorize, assess, continuously monitor (real-time risk management), and select information security controls for information systems that meet federal mandates on requirements and process guidelines.

The CAP certification training provides background related to how the federal RMF was developed, the expectations set by Congress and OMB, as well as the manner in which the RMF integrates with other information and business processes.

This online CAP certification training is a Department of Defense-approved course.
