Course Description

The Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service, or eMASS, is a web-based Government off-the-shelf (GOTS) solution that automates a broad range of services for comprehensive, fully-integrated cybersecurity management, including controls scorecard measurement, dashboard reporting, and the generation of Risk Management Framework (RMF) package reports. Nearly all DoD organizations have “standardized” on eMASS as the data repository for RMF Assessment and Authorization. eMASS eSSENTIALS ™ provides “how to” guidance for The Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Service, or eMASS, a web-based Government off-the-shelf (GOTS) solution that automates a broad range of services supporting RMF in the DoD environment. Training includes the hands-on eMASS eXPERIENCE Simulator™. The eMASS eXPERIENCE Simulator™ was created to provide an authentic eMASS user experience without the consequences of entering incorrect data in a live eMASS system. The interface and user experience mirror that of eMASS and the simulation environment is maintained to reflect all updates to the live version of eMASS as supported by DISA. *The eMASS eXPERIENCE Simulator™ does not require a DoD Common Access Card (CAC). eMASS eSSENTIALS is a one-day session in which we provide guidance for the most commonly-used eMASS functions, including: System Registration Implementation Plan Security Controls and Test Results Artifacts Asset Manager Plan of Action and Milestones (POA&M) We are continually revising the curriculum as DISA releases updates.
