The British Army’s Information Directorate turns to CySec Professionals Ltd for the delivery of NCSC certified NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) training.
Accredited through APMG International and listed as certified cyber training by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) the NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) Program is the industry’s first accredited training program that teaches organisations how to engineer, operationalise and continually improve a cybersecurity program based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST-CSF).
The NIST Cyber Security Framework (NIST-CSF) provides a policy framework of computer security guidance for how organisations can assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks. It provides a high-level taxonomy of cybersecurity outcomes and a methodology to assess and manage those outcomes. Originally aimed at operators of critical infrastructure, the framework is now being used by a wide range of businesses and countries as a proactive approach to cyber risk management.
CySec Professionals Ltd provided several NCSC certified NIST training options to the British Army’s Information Directorate in a variety of delivery formats:
1. The NCSP Foundation Certificate Course with Exam outlines current cybersecurity challenges and explains how organisations that implement an NCSF program can mitigate these risks.
2. The NCSP Practitioner Certificate Course with Exam details the current cybersecurity challenges plus teaches in depth how to design, implement manage and continually improve a NIST-CSF program.
3. The NCSP Boot Camp Certificate with Exam combining the Foundation and Practitioner training into one continual course and one exam.
As a result of the partnership, several Army personnel are now accessing accredited NCSP training via online, video tutorials at both Foundation Certificate and Boot Camp Certificate level.
Commenting on the partnership, Steven Cockcroft, owner of CySec Professionals Ltd stated:
“CySec Professionals Ltd is proud to partner with the British Army’s Information Directorate for the delivery of this industry first, accredited, training program. UK military personnel are committed, highly respected individuals who deserve the very best and this training enable them to improve their skill sets, continually improve already robust cybersecurity arrangements that have been implemented and remain aligned to the best practice contained within the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. Personnel will also benefit from obtaining a highly valued, accredited, industry certification as recognition of their professionalism.”
