In this course, you will learn how to complete the System Security Assessment and Authorization (A&A) process. This process is required in order to make your network FISMA compliant. We will do this by using the NIST Risk management Framework (RMF) for guidance. If you are not familiar with any of the terms i just mentioned, don’t worry, we will break it down in this course.
Think of FISMA compliance as the documentation side of Information Security (aka “Cyber-security Policy”). FISMA compliance is a requirement for all networks that hold federal government data. This course have helped many people get a firm understanding of FISMA Compliance requirement and NIST Special Publications. It has also helped many people secure a career in cyber-security.
Prior to starting this course, I recommend you first complete the COURSE: Fundamentals of IT and Cyber-Security Support
The Fundamental course will get you familiar with basic IT terms, help you to learn the interworking of an IT department and understand how cyber-security fits into the big picture of running a business.
In order to learn effectively, please follow these three steps for each video in this course:
- Step 1 – Watch the video for understanding (do not take notes)
- Step 2 – Watch the video and take notes (on a serious notebook, not a napkin 😉 )
- Step 3 – Complete the quiz after the video using only your notes (go back to the video to update your notes as necessary)
By following these steps, you will be able to conceptualize the topics rather than memorize them in your short-term memory. There might be times when you are tempted to skip a step, try and fight the urge.
Fair warning, the quizzes are designed to be thought provoking and is a reflection of how well you grasp the concepts presented in the videos. So you may need to do some google searches once in a while in order to answer some questions. Don’t get discouraged by this, my goal is to teach you from a true-to-life perspective. In the real world, as a security analyst, you will need to research the web for answers every now and then.

A very Positive Experience!
I wasn't sure what to expect when i learnt all the videos were just about 6 mins long. I wondered about the content and how much we can get out of it but I was wrong! Each video was designed to provide a wealth of information relevant to the job/career. My favorite things about these videos is that they cover all styles of learning: Visuals, Auditory, and Hands-On approach. You will never feel left behind. I highly recommend it! Kudos to the Author and Thank You!!
Informative course that can prepare you for a great career. Coursework videos break down practical on the job work while at the same time being entertaining. Highly Recommend!
