In a previous edition (January, 2020) of RMF Today … and Tomorrow, we presented an overview of the adoption of RMF and eMASS by the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) for use by cleared contractor companies operating within the National Industrial Security Program (NISP). BAI is pleased to announce that RMF training is now available specifically for cleared contractor companies operating under the purview of DCSA!

RMF Supplement for DCSA Cleared Contractors is a one-day class designed as a follow-on to RMF for DoD IT training. This class focuses on the “delta” between “standard” RMF and the process mandated in the DCSA Assessment and Authorization Process Manual (DAAPM).

If your company has a Facility Clearance (FCL) and maintains one or more on-premise, Classified IT systems, this is the class for you!

Topics include:

  • Introduction to DCSA
  • RMF Roles and Responsibilities
  • Security Training
  • Types of Systems
  • Authorization Boundaries
  • RMF Life Cycle
  • Documentation Artifacts
  • Type Authorization … and more
  • Security Control Inheritance
  • Support Tools and Resources

RMF Supplement for DCSA Cleared Contractors is being offered regularly in an online, instructor-led format through our Online Personal Classroom™ technology. The schedule of classes and registration information can be found on the back page of this newsletter, or at Additionally, BAI instructors are available to present a private class for your organization, either online or at your site.
