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.

The NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) curriculum is based on the NIST and NICE Cybersecurity Frameworks and is focused on teaching organizations how to identify protect, detect, respond and recover from cyber-attacks.

itSM NCSP training programs are accredited by APMG International, a independent global accreditation body and examination institute committed to ensuring excellent standards of service delivered by those they accredit. APMG is accredited by GCHQ, one of the three UK Intelligence and Security Agencies as the independent Certification Body for GCHQ-approved cyber security training courses.

itSM’s NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) programs have been approved for listing in the Department of Homeland Security National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS™) education and training catalog. All courses listed in the catalog are aligned with the specialty areas associated with the NIST and NICE frameworks.

Additional recognitions include:

– Approved as a qualified cybersecurity training program by GCHQ the National Security Agency for the United Kingdom

– Recognized by CIO Magazine as one of the must have cybersecurity certifications for 2019.

– Recognized in the National CyberWatch Center 2018 Innovations in Cybersecurity Education magazine.
