NIST Cybersecurity Training Solutions
Click on the slide above to open the itSM Solutions NIST & NICE Cybersecurity Rapid Adoption & Workforce Upskilling Presentation.
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST-CSF) was created to provide a uniform standard that government and businesses could adopt to guide their cybersecurity activities and risk management programs.
Subsequently, the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NIST-CWF) was created to identify the human capital requirements and standards that NIST requires for successful deployment. Critically, it provides a common, consistent lexicon to help employers create a cybersecurity workforce capable of engineering, maintaining and continually improving a cybersecurity program based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
The combined NIST & NICE Frameworks have now been approved as the governing framework for Cybersecurity for the US government, a growing number of critical infrastructure sectors (financial services, healthcare, energy etc.) and an extensive list of international governments.
itSM Solutions is a global consortium of academic, government and industry thought leaders working together to create accredited training solutions based on the cybersecurity, digital transformation and privacy publications created by the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) Axelos and the Institute for Digital Transformation.

NIST-CSF FastTrack™ Certification Training
NIST-CSF FastTrack™ Design & Operations Certification Training
The NIST-CSF FastTrack™ Program teaches organizations how to rapidly design, operationalize and automate NIST Cybersecurity controls and management systems that will deliver the outcomes expected by executive management, government regulators and industry auditors.
FastTrack’s three phase approach to operationalizing a NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST-CSF) program includes:
– Assessing the organizations current cybersecurity state in order to establish a cybersecurity beachhead
– Creating a defensible cybersecurity perimeter using the NIST-CSF informative reference controls to establish its future cybersecurity state
– Operationalizing a Continual Implementation & Improvement Management System (CIIS) that will enable it to sustain and continually improve its future cybersecurity state.
For Cybersecurity & Risk Management Professionals
NIST-CSF FastTrack teaches Cybersecurity & Risk professionals how to design, implement, operationalize and continually improve the controls, management systems and workforce skills required to comply with an organization cybersecurity policies and regulatory requirements.
For Internal & External Auditors
NIST-CSF FastTrack teaches cybersecurity auditors what NIST Cybersecurity core & mission critical capabilities (controls, management systems, workforce skills etc.) need to be in place in order to comply with an organization cybersecurity policies and regulatory requirement.
itSM Solutions will be releasing in 2020 a series of certificate programs that will be based on the informative references associated with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework which will include NIST-CSF to CIP, NIST 800-53, NIST 800-171, PCI-DSS and many others.
FastTrack™ also includes an option to add the CyberStrong™ Continuous Implementation & Improvement Platform to the training so candidates can learn how to automate the key functions of a NIST Cybersecurity program.
CyberStrong™ Continual Improvement & Implementation Management System
The CyberStrong Platform enables continuous improvement and real-time measurement, allowing your organization to manage cybersecurity as you would any other business function, irrespective of your company’s size. CyberStrong’s AI-powered optimizations automate risk mitigation action planning for compliance and risk initiatves that enables an “always on” approach to previously state GRC activites. The result is a more efficient process, as well as more informed decision making. Executive reports are updated in real-time and shared with a single click, assuring non-security executives of your successes.
Determine Compliance and Risk at A Glance
– Real-time Governance Dashboard view of business unit, global location, and asset type with associated gaps in security and risk posture
– Return on Security Investment (ROSI)-backed recommendations for mitigation and reporting for enhanced decision making
– Real-time compliance status for every asset, vendor, or location (NIST CSF, NIST 800-53, FEDRAMP, FIPS, ISO/IEC, DFARS, NIST SP 800-171,PCI-DSS, HIPPA, custom control sets and more)
– Clear management and executive-level reports that show progress toward target compliance posture and risk stature, including any remaining gaps
– Fully integrated threat feed providing clear visibility into program gaps and risk areas by control and control family
– Bulk update and cloning features eliminate duplicated efforts across assessments, regardless of framework, company-specific or industry standard
– Automated workflow that includes team members, status updates, sign off controls, and custom notifications for managers allow teams to easily track and manage for less human error
– Intuitive and credible risk scoring (based on NIST SP 800-30 risk management methodology) for each security control, assessment and therefore asset and ultimately the enterprise as a whole
For Cybersecurity & Risk Management Professionals
CyberStrong provides cybersecurity professionals with an online tool kit and management system to perform NIST Cybersecurity assessments, project plans, work assignments, status reports and real-time continuous monitoring and improvement.
For Executive Management
CyberStrong online governance dashboards provides executive management with real time visibility into its cybersecurity compliance and investments
For Internal & External Auditors
CyberStrong enable auditors to perform continuous assessments of the operating environment to ensure that the organization continues to meet its policy and regulatory requirements.
NICE CyberStaff™ Certification Training
NICE CyberStaff™ Workforce Up-Skilling & Intern Certification Training
The NICE-CWF CyberStaff™ Program is designed to rapidly upskill existing staff or new interns with the knowledge, skills and abilities outlined in the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework to become a contract or full-time employee in the field of cybersecurity or cyber risk management.
itSM’s NICE cybersecurity workforce training program is built around a 3-academy training model designed to teach the knowledge, skills and abilities organizations required to up-skill an existing workforce plus provide a pathway to train-up the new candidates required to fill an organizations ever changing and expanding cybersecurity workforce.
The three academies include:
Knowledge Academy – Online Certification training’s where candidate learns the Knowledge of cybersecurity and the NIST cybersecurity framework.
Skills Academy – Online Practice Lab training’s where the candidate learns the hands-on Skills associated with cybersecurity and the NIST NICE cybersecurity frameworks.
Abilities Academy – Online Virtual Internship training’s where candidates work to solve real world NIST cybersecurity problems in collaboration other candidates and industry mentors.
Enterprises have the option to plug into any of the academies programs that may already exist or new programs they feel would add additional value to its cybersecurity workforce.
HR Online Candidate & Intern Recruitment Marketplace
The online candidate & intern recruitment marketplace is designed to provide HR with just in time access to qualified candidates for contract or full-time employment or to interns that with some additional training’s could meet the requirements to fill a future cybersecurity role within the organization.
This streamlined approach to cybersecurity workforce recruitment and intern development enables enterprises to re-purpose monies previously allocated to new hire advertising and recruitment to deliver the outcomes of a qualified cybersecurity workforce for the enterprise and a pathway to employment for new candidates and interns.
