Mission Critical Institute Launches Certified Cloud Risk Management Professional (CCRMP) Certification

Leading Cyber Educator Creates New Performance-Based Cybersecurity Certification

Reston, VA, September 21, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Mission Critical Institute (MCI), an educational provider that advances cybersecurity careers and thought leadership by developing cybersecurity education, training, and best practices, today announced the launch of the Certified Cloud Risk Management Professional (CCRMP) certification.

“Employers desperately need job-ready cloud security professionals. IT and cyber professionals need to demonstrate they are job-ready. This is why MCI created the Certified Cloud Risk Management Professional credential,” confirmed Dr. V. N. Berlin, MCI CEO. “The first and only 100% hands-on, university-based cloud security certification validates that CCRMP recipients are job-ready, able to produce all NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF)/FedRAMP deliverables demanded by more than half of US organizations.”

The CCRMP was developed by cybersecurity risk management practitioners from major employers in the public and private sectors, who sit on the MCI Advisory Board. They include:

Jim Broad, Cyber Recon, DoD
Susan Cole, PhD, CACI
Dana Hudnall, Harris Corp
Ken Stavinoah, PhD, Cisco
Alan Belshaw, Booz Allen Hamilton
Steven Helwig, PhD, BCBS
Eric Handy, Handy Information Assurance Associate
Marc Thompson, ITPG
Lisa Brown, Raytheon (retired)
Mark Rasch, Verizon Security (retired)
Anthony DiFlorio, Raytheon (retired)

The CCRMP credential is awarded based on actual demonstrated competencies evidenced by completion of cloud security risk management projects. These projects are completed as part of university-based, online cloud security graduate programs. The curriculum and coursework allows students to obtain the skills and experience to effectively produce the critical deliverables for all six steps of the NIST RMF as they apply to both on-premises and cloud-based systems.
