Register for NIST Cybersecurity Video Training

NISTCSF.COM inaugural program NCSF-CFM, was built in partnership with UMass Lowell (UML) a NSA/DHS National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Research (CAE-R). This innovative NIST cybersecurity training program was built around an NCSF Controls Factory™ (NCSF-CFM) model created by Larry Wilson, CISO in the university 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 etc.) across the university five campuses. The NCSF-CFM program has since been used by other universities 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)
