NIST/NICE Cybersecurity

NIST/NICE Cybersecurity

Today, due to the ever changing threat landscape created by Digital Transformation programs (Mobile, Cloud, IOT etc.) and a very sophisticated network of threat actors (the bad guys) enterprises need to operationalize the NIST & NICE Cybersecurity Frameworks in order to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from cyber-attacks.

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.

The accredited NIST & NICE FastTrack™ Cybersecurity Certification Training Programs were created in partnership with academia, private industry and APMG International, a 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.

The NIST & NICE FastTrack™ programs are designed to train the engineering, operations and business professionals responsible for securing information assets and managing business risk across an enterprise and its supply chain. itSM’s NIST-CSF certification training programs were recently featured in CIO Magazine as one of the must have cybersecurity certifications for 2019. The NIST-CSF curriculum was also featured in the National CyberWatch Center 2018 Innovations in Cybersecurity Education magazine.

The NIST Cybersecurity FastTrack™ program provides a turn-key solution of certification training, mentoring and project 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 NCSP Boot Camp Practitioner program plus a 12 month license to the CyberStrong™ risk management platform.
 
 
The CyberStrong™ Platform

Cybersecurity can be costly, difficult and at times even chaotic. Many organizations do not have visibility into their cybersecurity posture. While big-box GRC products boast ease of use and time to value, most fall short of expectations. CyberStrong cuts through the complexity and uses a risk-centric lens to provide an unbeatable time-to-value, lower cost and higher productivity compliance and risk management solution. In the words of Gartner, “IRM goes beyond the traditional compliance-driven GRC technology solutions to provide actionable insights that are aligned with business strategies, not just regulatory mandates.”

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,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.
