London, England; Sydney, Australia – Press Release

Accredited through APMG International, listed as certified cyber training by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and listed as approved cyber training by the US, DHS CISA, the NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) Program is the industry’s first accredited training program that teaches individuals and organizations how to engineer, operationalize 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.
