NIST Cybersecurity Framework Certification Curriculum

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) training program was created in partnership with UMass Lowell (UML) a NSA/DHS National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Research (CAE-R). The program was designed to train the engineering, operations and business teams responsible for operationalizing the framework controls (CIS 20 Critical Controls etc.) and management systems (ISO 27001 etc.) across an enterprise and its supply chain.

The UMass Lowell NIST Cybersecurity Framework – Controls Factory Model (NCSF-CFM) training program was created by Larry Wilson the CISO in the UMass president’s office. The program was used to train the engineering, operations and business teams responsible for operationalizing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Program controls (CIS 20 Critical Controls, ISO27002, PCI, AICPA etc.) across the university five campuses and its supply chain. The NCSF-CFM program has since been used to train other universities, governments and private corporations to do the same.

The NCSF Control Factory™ model helps enterprises organize the Engineering, Operations and Business Risk of an NCSF program. The model is completely adaptable, which means that each of the modules can easily be updated, replaced or modified with minimal impact on the overall solution. Organizations are free to choose the minimum set of controls its need to improve its cybersecurity risk profile and then over time adopt additional controls that will take it to a higher cybersecurity state. The factory approach allows for changes in the cybersecurity threat landscape, new vulnerabilities and the addition of improvements while still keeping a focus on the critical assets and identities.

The program teaches the knowledge, skills and abilities to:

    • Develop a strategy to educate executives and board members about the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NCSF) and why they should allocate funding to launch and maintain a program
    • Create a Cybersecurity Program that will become policy for an organization or industry association
    • Engineer a solution to operationalize the cybersecurity program across an enterprise and its supply chain using the UMass Lowell NCSF Controls Factory™ Model (NCSF-CFM)
    • Build and Operate a Security Operations Center (SOC) to continuously monitor and respond to changes in the cybersecurity profile documented in the cybersecurity program
    • Conduct continuous Business Risk assessments to compare the current profile against the target profile (documented in the program) to identify any gaps that need to be addressed
    • Prepare for the IT, Information Security and Business Skill certification exams outlined in the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF)

The NCSF-CFM program and its author have won the following industry awards:

  • Security Magazine’s Most Influential People in Security, 2016
  • SANS People Who Made a Difference in Cybersecurity Award, 2013
  • Information Security Executive (ISE) nominee for Executive of the Year for North America, 2013
  • ISE North America Project Award Winner I for the Academic and Public-Sector Category, 2013

Our UMass Lowell NIST Cybersecurity Framework NCSF-CFM certification training programs were recently featured in the National CyberWatch Center 2018 Innovations in Cybersecurity Education magazine.
