REGISTERED DOD RMF PRACTITIONER (RDRP)

BAI Information Security is pleased to announce the launch of Registered DoD RMF Practitioner (RDRP) – a network of security professionals specializing in supporting Risk Management Framework (RMF) in Department of Defense (DoD) programs. The requirements to join RDRP are very straightforward:

  • Step 1: Attend 4 days or more of RMF for DoD IT training.
  • Step 2: Complete the 50 question “RMF for DoD IT Competency Test” with a passing score of 70%.
  • Step 3: Remit the initial credentialing fee.

Being part of the RDRP registry not only adds resume value, it also shows employers and government officials that registrants have a comprehensive understanding of RMF as it is implemented within DoD. Registrants are also joining a community that fosters RMF inquiry as well as networking opportunities amongst colleagues.

RDRP maps to a variety of work roles as defined by The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Work Framework (NCWF). NCWF was developed in partnership with over 20 agencies and the federal departments to establish baseline qualifications in cybersecurity career development. BAI is confident qualifications such as RDRP will become more and more critical as NCWF is finalized and moved out of draft form.

BAI’s students who have completed 4-days or more of RMF DoD IT training may go to www.rmf.org/rdrp to begin the registration process.

The only cost associated with becoming an RDRP is a one-time $100 administration fee that covers program administration. Once an RDRP candidate passes the RDRP exam and remits their $100 registration fee, they will become a lifetime RDRP member. The only requirements to maintain membership is an RMF refresher training delivered annually at no cost to the RDRP member.
