On this accelerated (ISC)² Certified Authorisation Professional (CAP) course, you’ll build knowledge in Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) and authorising and maintaining information systems utilising various risk management frameworks, as well as best practices, policies and procedures established in cyber security.

In just 3 days, you’ll learn the principles of information security, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Risk Management Framework (RMF) and System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) integration. You’ll also build knowledge in:

  • Compiling required security documentation for Authorising Official (AO)
  • Performing ongoing Security Control Assessments (SCA)
  • Determining specific monitoring tasks and frequency based on the agency’s strategy
  • Performing ongoing Information System (IS) Risk Acceptance

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the (ISC)² Certified Authorisation Professional (CAP) exam, and achieve your certification. As an Official (ISC)² Training Provider and through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to official courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.


This course is ideal if you are in IT, information security and information assurance practitioners and work in Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) roles and have a need to understand, apply and/or implement a risk management program for IT systems within an organisation.
