Session(s): 1 day
Class Time: 8:30 AM-5:30 PM
|Subject Description:||This ACQUIROS accredited training course discusses how an organization can use the NIST Cyber Security Framework (NCSF) as a key part of its systematic process for identifying, assessing, and managing cybersecurity risk throughout an organization. This includes both business risk and technology risk. The Framework is not designed to replace existing processes; an organization can use its current process and overlay it onto the Framework to determine gaps in its current cybersecurity risk approach and develop a roadmap to improvement.
The Framework is composed of three parts: the Framework Core, the Framework Implementation Tiers and the Framework Profiles. By utilizing the Framework as a cybersecurity risk management tool, an organization can determine activities that are most important to critical service delivery and prioritize expenditures to maximize the impact of the investment.
In addition this course will introduce the cyber security Controls FactoryTM Model (CFM) developed by Larry Wilson, CISO, UMass President’s Office. The CFM provides an organization with the approach to operationalize the NIST Cyber Security Framework based on the modular engineering-based approach. CFM has three main areas of focus: the Engineering Center, the Technology Center and the Business Center.
*The NIST CSF also provides a 7-step approach for the implementation and improvement of their cybersecurity posture utilizing the NIST CSF. The 7-steps include:
This course will focus on Blooms Level 1 & 2.
Please note – All NCSF-CFM candidates that are successful in passing the certification exam will receive a verified digital badge that they can post to their LinkedIn profiles.
