CHIPS Articles: Training sessions offer guidance for DISN connection approval process

Training sessions offer guidance for DISN connection approval process
By DISA News - March 28, 2017
Live and recorded trainings are available for DoD and non-DoD entities seeking to establish, re-accredit, or re-certify their connections to the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN).

Mission partners are provided with the policy and process information needed to reduce or eliminate processing delays caused by inaccurate or incomplete information.

All areas associated with enterprise connections are covered, and trainings are offered via computer-based trainings (CBTs), Defense Collaboration Services (DCS)-hosted live-remote trainings, and a monthly DCS question and answer session.

CBTs that provide in-depth guidance on specific elements of the connection process are available through the Mission Partner Training Program (MPTP) website. There are currently nine training videos posted to the site. The recorded briefings target specific steps in the processes and areas where users often have difficulty.

Live trainings are held the first and third Tuesday of every month at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Upcoming topics include:

-- April 4, 18 — Ports, Protocols, and Services Management (PPSM) Category Assurance List.

-- May 2, 16 — Cloud Information Technology Project Onboarding.

-- June 6, 20 — Defense Information Assurance Security Accreditation Working Group (DSAWG) 101.

A live question and answer session with subject matter experts will be held on the third Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. Users can ask questions on any topic and will receive answers from a variety of subject matter experts on hand.

The Defense Collaboration Service (DCS) URL for live trainings is https://conference.apps.mil/webconf/DISAMissionPartnerTrainingProgram.

A teleconference line is also available at 301-909-7352, DSN 312-631-7352. The access code is 34722669.
