NIST NICE Workforce Assessment and Training Curriculum Solutions

Today, due to the ever changing threat landscape created by Mobile Computing, Cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT) and a very sophisticated network of threat actors (i.e., the bad guys) enterprises need to build a workforce capable of engineering, maintaining and improving the IT & Cybersecurity frameworks and methodologies to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from cyber-attacks.

itSM Solutions NISTCSF.COM is a global consortium of academic, government and industry thought leaders working together to create IT and Cybersecurity curriculum that teaches the knowledge, skills and abilities to operationalize the frameworks and methodologies created by NIST, Axelos, CompTIA, ISACA, ISC2, PMI and other internationally recognized institutes and organizations.
The consortium’s focus is to create licensable assessment, curriculum and train-trainer-services that will provide an affordable and scalable way for other academic and commercial institutions to offer these programs as part of their IT & Cybersecurity workforce development program.

NIST NICE Workforce Assessment & Mentoring Program

NISTCSF.COM’s National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) enterprise workforce assessment & mentoring program is a five phase approach to organizational change based on the key principles outlined in Kotter’s eight step change process for organizational transformation.

The NICE assessment & mentoring program provides enterprises with a structured approach on how to profile the knowledge and skills of its IT & Cybersecurity workforce and then map that profile to a series of role based training programs designed to create a workforce capable of engineering, maintaining and improving the IT & NIST Cybersecurity frameworks and methodologies an organization needs to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from cyber-attacks.
