NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) Training Curriculum
This DxCERTS cybersecurity curriculum program teaches students how to Engineer & Operationalize a cybersecurity program based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
The NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) training curriculum was created in partnership with UMass Lowell (UML) a NSA/DHS National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Research (CAE-R). The curriculum was designed to train the engineering, operations and business teams responsible for operationalizing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework controls (CIS 20 Critical Controls etc.) and management systems (ISO 27001 etc.) across the university five campuses. The NCSP curriculum has since been used to train other universities, governments and private corporations to do the same.
The curriculum accredited by APMG International teaches the knowledge, skills and abilities to:
- Develop a strategy to educate executives and board members about the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and why they should allocate funding to launch and maintain a program
- Create a Cybersecurity program that will become policy for the organization
- Engineer a solution that will span the enterprise and its supply chain
- Build and Operate a Security Operations Center (SOC) to continuously monitor and respond to changes in the documented cybersecurity profile
- Conduct continuous business risk assessments that compares the current profile against the target profile
Our UMass Lowell NIST Cybersecurity Framework NCSF-CFM certification training curriculum was recently featured in the National CyberWatch Center 2018 Innovations in Cybersecurity Education magazine.
