(ISC)2 CAP: Certified Authorization Professional Boot Camp


Duration: 5 Days

The Certified Authorization Professional (CAP) credential is an objective measure of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for personnel involved in the process of authorizing and maintaining information systems. Specifically, this credential applies to those responsible for formalizing processes used to assess risk and establish security requirements and documentation. Their decisions will ensure that the information system possesses security commensurate with the level of exposure to potential risk, as well as damage to assets or individuals.

This five-day course prepares the student for the (ISC)2 CAP (Certified Authorization Professional formerly the Certification and Accreditation Professional) exam. In addition, this course teaches students the skills and knowledge concerning the Risk Management Framework (RMF) as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in support of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).
