RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN supersedes reference (a) and provides guidance for the
FY18 Cybersecurity Awareness training requirement. The Defense Information
Systems Agency (DISA) has released Cyber Awareness Challenge 2018 (also
referred to as CAC version 5).
2. Per references (b) and (c), Navy personnel, civilians, and contractors
with access to Unclassified or Secret networks must complete the Department
of Defense (DoD) employee version of the Cyber Awareness Challenge (CAC).
Navy personnel, civilians, and contractors with access to Sensitive
Compartmented Information must complete the Intelligence Community (IC)
version of the CAC.
3. Personnel who have already completed CAC version 4, either DoD employee
or IC version as applicable, for FY18 General Military Training (GMT) after 1
October 2017 have satisfied the GMT requirement and do not have to complete
CAC 2018. All remaining Navy personnel (military personnel, civilians, and
contractors), must complete the CAC 2018, either DoD employee or IC versions
as applicable, by 30 September 2018 in order to satisfy the FY18 CAC GMT
4. Authorized methods for training delivery:
a. Total Workforce Management Service (TWMS),
b. Navy e-Learning (NEL), https://learning.nel.navy.mil
(Note: the Navy My Navy Portal, https://www.MNP.navy.mil/group/general
-skills-training/gmt will also redirect users to the NEL link)
c. DISA Website, https://iatraining.disa.mil/eta/disa_cac2018
d. Other approved training sources, DISA Digital Video Discs (DVDs).
5. Ships can access the annual training from the NEL application hosted on
the Navy Information/Application Product Suite (NIAPS) server, eliminating
the need to reach back to shore hosted NEL websites. The CAC 2018 (DoD
employee and IC) courses are available via the NEL Afloat Learning Management
System Pub Amendment 112 for download by the NIAPS Administrator using the
normal manual NIAPS distance support update process. If unable to download
Learning Management System Pub Amendment 112, ships can request a DVD with
these files to be mailed by submitting a support request to Navy 311.
Additionally, CAC 2018 (DoD employee and IC) on DVD are available from DISA.
To pre-order, download, and submit a DoD Information Assurance Training and
Awareness Product order form from
http://iasecontent.disa.mil/eta/products_order_form.pdf. Include a written
note in the comments section to ask for "Cyber Awareness Challenge" Version
5.0 CDs, when available.
6. Although Cybersecurity Awareness training is an individual
responsibility, commanders and commanding officers are accountable for 100
percent certification of their personnel. Training officers are responsible
for ensuring their personnel complete and properly document the required
training, meanwhile the Information System Security Manager (ISSM) is
responsible for reporting compliance to meet Federal Information Security
Modernization Act of 2014 requirements.
7. Command training officers must validate training via TWMS or Fleet
Training Management and Planning System (FLTMPS) (https:/
/ntmpsweb.ncdc.navy.mil/Fltmps/) authoritative database. Training officers
will manually record training completed via the DISA website, or DISA DVDs in
FLTMPS using the Learning Event Completion Form. Report any discrepancies to
the Navy Training Management Planning System Operational Support office at
ntmps.support(AT)navy.mil or 1-866-438-2898/DSN 922-1867.
8. Echelon II training officers are responsible for maintaining a list of
personnel who have fulfilled the training requirement in addition to
compiling data in TWMS for their respective area of responsibility. The
command ISSM will disable accounts of users who do not complete the training
by 30 September 2018.
9. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until cancelled or superseded.

Information Warfare, OPNAV N2N6.//
