Risk Management Framework Program Overview

As students progress through the FC RMF – Fusion Cyber Risk Management Framework Professional Program, they prepare for the Security+, CISA, CISSP, or CEH certifications. Students can earn up to two certificates within the FC RMF pathway, the world’s most complete, hands-on cybersecurity workforce program. As a result, students get the skills they need to land a high-paying cybersecurity job and build a stable career. The FC RMF is academically aligned to the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) and Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework includes the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). The Security+, CISA, CISSP, and CEH certifications embedded (after passing the certification body exam) within the FC RMF program also meet DoD Directive 8140, the successor to 8570, certification and compliance requirements. Our program is rigorous and we foster an environment of collaboration and creativity.

Our program can be taken for college credit meaning students can utilize Federal Student Loans, FAFSA, GI Bill, 9/11 funds, and other veterans benefits. We work with universities, Veteran Affairs, nonprofits, and other public sphere entities along with private partners such as Cisco, CBDA, and more. Our public partnerships bring the people and are already engaging the populations we’re hoping to train and our private partners benefit from and assist our graduates in building cyber careers by providing work experiences that lead to meaningful careers. We are a community making the future better by creating efficient pipelines for cybersecurity talent management. Join us and help solve the cybersecurity talent shortage.
