This 3-day instructor-led boot camp is a combination of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NCSF-F) Foundation and Practitioner (NCSF-P) courses. This boot camp provides a deep dive into the components of the NIST CSF and NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) and how they align to risk management. The course will follow the principles of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to design and implement (or improve) a cybersecurity program to protect critical assets. The training details defense in depth, creation of a Written Information Security Program and implementing ongoing assessments for a continuous improvement plan. Note: includes NIST Framework certification exam and continuing education credits, such as PDUs and CEUs. Candidates receive a certificate for a passing score and a skills-gap document after completing their exam. And while there are no prerequisites for this course, basic computing skills and security knowledge will be very helpful.
