The Registered DoD RMF Practitioner (RDRP) program was created in response to BAI RMF Resource Center recognizing the need for a credential which shows competency and proficiency in the understanding and application of RMF for DoD. RDRP is comprised of a network of information security professionals specializing in supporting Risk Management Framework (RMF) in the 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 questions “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 credentialing value, but 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.
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.
