Introducing NIST Training Courses – Reasons why our expert guidance is different
URM is delighted to announce that is it the sole organisation able to deliver National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) training
courses in England, Scotland and Ireland (both the Republic of Ireland and Southern Ireland). The courses are approved by NIST, a world-leading intelligence, cyber and
security agency and accredited by GCHQ and APMG.
The NCSP training programme offers two levels of training; Foundation and Practitioner. The program was designed to provide knowledge and training to all individuals responsible for putting the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NCSF) controls and management systems (ISO 27001 etc.) into operation across an enterprise and its supply chain. The NCSF outlines how organisations can assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect and respond to cyber-attacks. It provides a high-level taxonomy of cybersecurity outcomes and a methodology to assess and manage those outcomes. The Framework is being proactively used by a wide range of businesses and organisations to adopt a proactive approach to cyber risk management.
There are 2 levels of training available: Foundation and Practitioner.
