This three day class provides a current and well-developed approach to evaluation and testing of security controls to prove they are functioning correctly in today's IT systems. Author and Instructor, Leighton Johnson shows you how to take FISMA, NIST Guidance, and DOD actions and provide a detailed, hands-on guide to performing assessment events for information security professionals who work with US federal agencies, or for those organizations who have chosen to implement the NIST Framework. The DOD Knowledge Service and the NIST Families assessment guides are used as the basis for needs assessment, requirements, and evaluation efforts for all of the security controls. Each of the controls can and should be evaluated in its own unique way, through testing, examination, and key personnel interviews. Each of these methods is discussed. Learn and be able to implement the following in class:
How to use SP800-53A, SP800-115, DOD Knowledge Service, and the NIST Families assessment guides to implement thorough evaluation efforts for the security controls in your organization.
How to implement proper evaluation, testing, and assessment procedures and methodologies with step-by-step walkthroughs of all key concepts.
And how to implement assessment techniques for each type of control, provide evidence of assessment, and proper reporting techniques.
