View all Fact Sheets

DISA Services are major components of the DOD Information Networks (DODIN), and are building blocks for the C4I support DISA offers to the nation's warfighters. Mission Partners throughout the world depend on DISA Services to communicate and transfer critical information every day.

DISA will continue to evolve a secure and cost effective global information infrastructure, and create cutting edge services to support warfighter and other Mission Partner requirements.

The DISA Services Training Course provides students with an overview and working knowledge of DISA services, processes, security initiatives, requirements and customer support options.

This 3 day course is open to all DOD Services and Agencies and their contractors who want to learn about how DISA supports the DOD, what services DISA provides (current and future), and where to find more in-depth information and resources.

Attendees typically include both technical and non-technical personnel currently using or considering DISA services and those involved in DOD global telecommunications support, services, and cybersecurity.
