Online Cloud Security Risk Management Practicum I

Level: Intermediate

Become a Job-Ready Certified Cloud Risk Management Professional (CCRMP). To prevent the $2.1T in projected cyber breaches, employers need Certified Cloud Risk Management Professionals who have demonstrated they can implement the NIST Risk Management Framework and FedRAMP. The NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) and the Federal Risk and authorisation Management Program (FedRAMP) are the de facto standards utilised for cloud security risk management in the U.S. today.

To address accelerating cyber staffing shortages, Mission Critical Institute (MCI) established the CCRMP to provide employers and candidates a performance-based cloud security certification.

As an MCI authorised training partner, Learning Tree can help you earn the CCRMP through five courses that ensure you acquire hands-on project experience in implementing the NIST RMF and FedRAMP.

This is the third of five courses that help you earn CCRMP certification.
