About the Event
Accredited through APMG International, certified in the United Kingdom by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and listed as qualified cyber training by Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS CISA) in the U.S., the NCSP® training program teaches individuals and organizations how to engineer, operationalize and continually improve a NIST Cyber Security Framework Program.
This Practitioner level course expands on the learning undertaken during the NCSP® Foundation Certificate course and teaches students how to apply a best practice approach to designing an enterprise risk management cybersecurity program based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Informative References and management systems.
Following the course introduction, the course introduces the intersection between digital transformation and cybersecurity, which is followed by an overview of the threat landscape.
With this in place, the course uses the Center for Internet Security Controls as an example of a cybersecurity “informative reference” that can be used to build capability.
Following an approach to the implementation of cybersecurity controls, the course delves into an organizational approach to cybersecurity that starts governance, management, and a supportive culture, including an understanding of how things occur within the organization concerning three specific areas: work, communication, and improvement.
Finally, the course provides additional guidance for the cybersecurity practitioner to determine the current state, the desired state, and a plan to close the gap – and to do repeatedly to embed it into organizational DNA.
