NIST-CSF Accredited 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 Engineering & Automation Training
NIST-CSF FastTrack™ Engineering & Automation Training Program
The NIST Cybersecurity FastTrack™ Practitioner Program provides a turn-key solution of accredited training, mentoring and optional risk management automation designed to facilitate the rapid adoption of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework across an enterprise and its supply chain.
The program is centered around learning the knowledge, skills and abilities to operationalize and automate all aspects of a NIST Cybersecurity program including assessments, project plans, workforce assignments, workforce training, status reports and real-time continuous monitoring and improvement.
FastTrack’s three phase approach to rapidly operationalizing a NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST-CSF) program includes:
– Learning how to assess an organizations current cybersecurity state in order to operationalize the controls that will enable it to establish a cybersecurity beachhead.
– Learning how to create a defensible cybersecurity perimeter using the NIST-CSF informative reference controls that will enable it to realize its cybersecurity future state
– Learning how to operationalize a Continual Implementation & Improvement Management System (CIIS) that will enable it to sustain and continually improve its cybersecurity future state.
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™ Integrated Risk Management Platform to the training so candidates can kick off their NIST Cybersecurity assessment and program upon return to the office.
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 At A Glance
– Instantly see your 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 controls and more).
– Provide management with clear reports that show progress toward target compliance posture and any remaining gaps.
– Get ahead of vulnerabilities using an integrated threat feed, which provides clear visibility into areas of risk control by family.
– Empower Your Team to Complete Any Assessment. Select and update all controls associated with any company-specific frameworks and standards in an intuitive environment.
– Score your level of risk (based on NIST SP 800-30 risk management methodology) for each security control.
– Score compliance for each control with a simple workflow that includes needed team members.
– Set due dates, view workflow status and assign control owners with collaborators.
NIST NICE Up-Skilling & Staffing Program
NIST NICE Cybersecurity Online Training & Staffing Program
itSM’s NIST NICE cybersecurity 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.
