Training Overview

RMF Supplement for DCSA Cleared Contractors

(One Day)

Cleared contractor companies are required to have Authorization to Operate (ATO) for classified information systems on their premises, under the purview of the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA). DCSA employs a unique “flavor” of the Risk Management Framework (RMF).

RMF Supplement for DCSA Cleared Contractors is a one-day session in which we provide instruction on the unique features of RMF as practiced in the DCSA cleared contractor community. Topics include:

  • Introduction to DCSA
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Types of Systems (SUSA, MUSA, P2P, etc.)
  • RMF Life Cycle (Prepare, Categorize, Select, Implement, Assess, Authorize, Monitor)
  • Documentation and artifacts
  • Type Authorization and other special circumstances
  • National Industrial Security Program (NISP) eMASS
  • Support tools

Training Goals

The primary goal of the RMF Supplement for DCSA Cleared Contractors training program is to provide detailed practical application based RMF training that will help cleared contractors work through RMF requirements towards obtaining an ATO in the most efficient means possible. At the completion of training we anticipate students to have met the following goals:

  • Have a working understanding of the process of implementing security controls and submitting an RMF package
  • Possess the knowledge to meet all RMF requirements as mandated by DoD
  • Understand the expectations of DoD as outlined in DoD, NIST, CNSS, and DCSA guidance

Who should attend?

RMF Supplement for DCSA Cleared Contractors is recommended for employees of cleared contractor companies (i.e., companies with Facility Clearance) that maintain in-house classified IT systems. Completion of RMF for DoD training (or equivalent) is a prerequisite.
