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, IQ4 and the Institute for Digital Transformation.

The NIST-CSF FastTrack™ Program Design & Operations Certification Training Program teaches enterprises how to design and operationalize a NIST Cybersecurity program 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) teaches organizations how to:

Assess its current cybersecurity state in order to establish a cybersecurity beachhead

Create a defensible cybersecurity perimeter using the NIST-CSF informative reference controls to establish its future cybersecurity state

Operationalize a Continual Implementation & Improvement Management System (CIIS) that will enable it to sustain and continually improve its future cybersecurity state.
