NIST-CSF Rapid Assessment, Engineering, Automation & Upskilling Solutions
The NIST Cybersecurity FastTrack™ program provides a turn-key solution of accredited certification training, mentoring and 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.
The program includes the accredited NCSP Boot Camp Practitioner training program plus a 12 month license to the CyberStrong™ Integrated Risk Management Platform.
The CyberStrong™ Platform
CyberStrong Simplifies Cybersecurity Program Management.
Measurement and management must be combined to operationalize a proactive cybersecurity program. CyberStrong is the only solution to add unparalleled automaton to compliance and risk projects, quickly establishing a baseline cybersecurity posture in as little as hours. An automated CyberStrong Score provides easy-to understand measurement that communicates program success between IT teams, stakeholders and executive management.
CyberStrong is Powered by People and Breakthrough Artificial Intelligence (AI).
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.
The CyberStrong Platform Makes Managing Your Cyber Program Easy.
Compliance with a spreadsheet or static GRC tool is invalid the moment the assessment is complete. Streamline integrated risk management with unmatched visibility, ease of use, and automaton that transcends traditional bottlenecks that slow you down.
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 vulnerabilites 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 intituitve 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.
Target Audience: Businesses of any size looking to operationalize the NIST Cybersecurity Framework across its enterprise and supply chain to become Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) certified.
Candidates who attend and complete the NCSP Manager course are eligible to purchase and sit for the APMG certification exam along with applying for CPE, PDU and CEU continuing education credits from PMI, ISACA, CompTIA and other professional certification bodies.
NICE-CWF New Candidate Recruitment, Training & Staffing Solutions
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework 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 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 along with a growing number of critical infrastructure sectors and international governments.
The HPC CyberMatch™ Platform
The HPC CyberMatch™ Training Platform is built around a 3-module training curriculum of:
– Online Certification Training where the candidate learns the Knowledge of cybersecurity and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
– Online Practice Labs where the candidate learns the hands-on Skills associated with cybersecurity and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
– Virtual Internship Training’s where candidates work with a team of students and industry CISO’s to acquire the Abilities to solve real world cybersecurity problems in a virtual environment.
The program is designed using the same concepts military organizations have used for years to train and enable its workforce and new recruits.
The HPC CyberMatch™ Talent Marketplace Platform provides prospective employers real-time access to NIST/NICE qualified cybersecurity professionals without the hassle of the long recruiting and interviewing efforts, credential verification and background checks as the online talent marketplace takes care of that as part of its candidate verification process.
In short, the HPC CyberMatch talent marketplace was designed to eliminate the cybersecurity talent shortage that exists today.
