In a nutshell
If you are currently a cyber security professional looking to give their career a boost by learning about the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, then this NIST Cybersecurity Framework Practitioner qualification from ALC Training could be an ideal course for you.
The primary goal of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Practitioner course is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to effectively implement the Framework in their professional environments. The course provides a comprehensive overview of the Framework, covering its core functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. Additionally, it includes informative references and culminates in practical workshops, a mock exam, and a final exam to ensure a thorough understanding and readiness for application.
To reinforce theoretical learning with practical experience, the course incorporates a series of hands-on exercises using a case study that runs throughout the training week. Participants will engage in activities such as developing an asset register, identifying threats, assessing risks, and making security recommendations. They will evaluate various service models, discuss the specific risks of cloud storage, and design security architecture.
The course also covers the creation of a data classification scheme, defining security zones, and evaluating encryption technologies. It explores the prioritisation of business operations for continuity planning and the considerations for an in-house versus managed service model for incident response. This blend of theory and practice ensures that participants can effectively apply the NIST Cybersecurity Framework in their respective roles.
This intensive 5-day course, delivered either face-to-face or online via an instructor-lead virtual classroom, is thoughtfully designed for information security professionals seeking to acquire an in-depth understanding of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and its practical application. The NIST CSF training program not only delves into the theoretical foundations of the framework but also adds a regional perspective by demonstrating how it can be effectively applied in the context of Australia or New Zealand through the use of a case study. Each module aims to introduce the NIST perspective, provide comprehensive and practical insights, and culminate in the practical application of the knowledge acquired through real-world case studies.
