CySec Professionals Ltd and CyberCovered partner to bring NCSC Certified NCSP® training and discounted cyber insurance to UK SME's
Accredited through APMG International and listed as certified cyber training by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) the NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP®) training programme 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).
