ACAS 5.3

Assured Compliance Assessment Solution (ACAS) classes, focused on the application’s version 5.3 console.

This course is open to all Department of Defense (DOD) military, civilian, and contract support personnel responsible for the implementation, management, maintenance, and supervision of ACAS – an automated, enterprise-wide vulnerability scanning software solution used to detect and assess vulnerabilities and attempts to access the DOD Information Networks in real-time.

The course will provide ACAS Security Center users with the skills and knowledge necessary to discover and report relevant security information using ACAS products.

Upon completion of the class, which consists of lectures and quizzes, students must complete an end-of-course certification exam. They will then receive a certificate of completion.

There are no prerequisites; however, students should possess a basic knowledge of vulnerability management, compliance auditing, and information security and awareness concepts, vulnerability scanning tools, and basic networking concepts.

This course is required for all C5 ATS staff that will be conducting scans on the C5 network or WST’s. Upon completion of this course you must supply the ISSO with a copy, in pdf format via email, of your certificate of completion before you will be given access to ACAS.

Upon course completion, students will be able to perform the following:
• Manage ACAS scanners at a local level
• Run ACAS broad and targeted scans
• Read data from ACAS scans
• Receive a certificate of completion or certification
