Need some high value NIST CSF Professional certification training, but not sure where to start looking? Look no further than INTERPROM’s accredited certification training courses for NIST CSF.
What is NIST CSF?
The National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) provides a prioritized, flexible, repeatable, performance‐based, and cost-effective approach to manage cybersecurity risk for those processes, information, and systems directly involved in the delivery of critical infrastructure services. NIST CSF, developed in collaboration with industry, provides guidance to an organization on managing cybersecurity risk.
Critical infrastructure is defined as “systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital an organization, a city, a county, a province or even a whole country that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, (national) economic security, (national) public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.” Due to the increasing pressures from external and internal threats, organizations responsible for critical infrastructure need to have a consistent and iterative approach to identifying, assessing, and managing cybersecurity risk. This approach is necessary regardless of an organization’s or region’s size, threat exposure, or cybersecurity sophistication today.
The Need for NIST CSF
Today, half the world’s population is online, a third are on a social network, 53% are mobile, and they span all ages, races, geographies and attitudes across the planet. The culmination of this explosion in consumer connectivity is the Digital Economy.
It has disrupted age old industries while giving rise to completely new ones. And, it has upended the way brands are built. Furthermore, it has become the top issue in boardrooms across industries around the world. For many companies, technology is taking on a new role—as a driver of revenue and enabler of new business models.
With more and more commerce and collaboration taking place digitally, there are great rewards but new risks that need to be considered. Part of the problem is a lack of maturity when it comes to matters of cybersecurity. The focus on availability as a key metric can get in the way of innovation. There is a need to accept some level of loss but understanding what an acceptable level of loss is remains continuous.
The NIST CSF Professional courses introduce students to the digital economy and cybersecurity. The focus will be on NIST CSF and how to implement the key capabilities described in the framework to reduce cyber-risk and ensure organizations to achieve the main benefits of the digital economy.
INTERPROM is one of the few NIST CSF accredited training organizations with instructors that possess decades of hands-on and didactical information and cybersecurity experience.
