Course Overview

Official ISC2 Training Seminar for the CGRC (Certified in Governance, Risk and Compliance) formerly known as CAP provides a comprehensive review of the knowledge required for authorizing and maintaining information systems within the NIST Risk Management Framework. This training course will help students review and refresh their knowledge and identify areas they need to study for the CGRC exam. Content aligns with and comprehensively covers the seven domains of the (ISC)² CGRC Common Body of Knowledge (CBK®).

Official courseware is developed by (ISC)² – creator of the CGRC CBK  – to ensure your training is relevant and up-to-date. Our instructors are verified security experts who hold the CGRC and have completed intensive training to teach (ISC)² content. At the completion of this course, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify and describe the steps and tasks within the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF).
  • Apply common elements of other risk management frameworks using the RMF as a guide.
  • Describe the roles associated with the RMF and how they are assigned to tasks within the RMF.
  • Execute tasks within the RMF process based on assignment to one or more RMF roles.
  • Explain organizational risk management and how it is supported by the RMF.
