The class focuses on general concepts to create the broad knowledge base necessary in order to position your career for segue into any type of FISMA compliance project.
The first two days of the course presents an overview of FISMA compliance requirements and discusses what documentation is needed, and what types of information to include in each document. Students are taught how to develop the different deliverables required for FISMA compliance. FISMA 101 is an introductory course. Students should have a basic understanding of information security principles, concepts, and technologies. Although anyone performing security audits can benefit from this course, it is of particular use to U.S. federal agencies, that must comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA). This class is also appropriate for organizations that have contracts and grants with U.S. federal agencies.
The FISMA Center classes take place in a small, personalized environment. There will never be more than 8 students in a class.
