This intensive 1-day course offers participants a deep dive into the world of DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) through a hands-on virtual workshop experience. Designed for IT professionals and security practitioners within the Department of Defense (DoD) and beyond, this workshop provides a comprehensive understanding of STIGs and practical skills for implementing them effectively.

Throughout the day, participants will engage in a series of hands-on activities conducted within a virtual machine environment. These activities are carefully crafted to simulate real-world scenarios, allowing participants to gain practical experience in applying STIG requirements to various IT systems and technologies.

Key topics covered in the workshop include:

  • Introduction to DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs)
  • Understanding STIG architecture and components
  • Interpreting STIG requirements and controls
  • Implementing STIGs in a virtual machine environment
  • Assessing system compliance and remediating non-compliance issues
  • DoD Provided Tools (STIG Viewer, SCC, and Evaluate-STIG)
  • Best practices for maintaining STIG compliance over time

By the end of the workshop, participants will have acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to confidently implement and maintain DISA STIGs within their organizations. Whether you're a seasoned IT professional or new to the world of STIGs, this workshop offers invaluable hands-on experience to enhance your cybersecurity capabilities and ensure compliance with DoD security standards. Join us for this immersive learning experience and take your STIG implementation skills to the next level!

Course Prerequisites

While no prerequisites are required for enrollment in this course, possessing a foundational comprehension of information security principles and a grasp of compliance and regulatory standards is advantageous. Familiarity with concepts like confidentiality, integrity, availability, risk assessment, and vulnerability management is beneficial. Prior experience in IT or cybersecurity is recommended to enhance your learning experience.  

 

For the purposes of the lab, dual monitors are recommended, or familiarity with switching back and forth between applications.  Additionally, there is some work with PowerShell and XML so familiarity with basic programming and command line interface is recommended.

Private Group Classes

If you have a group of students (normally 8 or more), any of our training programs can be delivered at your site (in a suitable classroom facility), or in our Online Personal Classroom. Group classes offer significant savings over individual class registrations; the larger the class, the greater the savings.
