NIST Cybersecurity Framework Practitioner: Learning Outcomes | ALC Training News

  • No comments

The key objective is for each participant to complete the course and immediately be able to apply the NIST Cybersecurity Framework in their own work context:

  • NIST Cybersecurity Framework Overview
  • Identify Function
  • Protect Function
  • Detect Function
  • Respond Function
  • Recover Function
  • Informative References
  • Practical Workshop
  • Mock Exam
  • Final Exam

The NIST certification course approach has been designed to blend the introduction of a topic via theory and practical exercises, designed to maximise understanding and retention. Strong use is made of a case study throughout the week’s training. Exercises include:

  • Develop an asset register
  • Identify threats, determine risks, and make recommendations
  • Evaluate service provider models, contrasting risks and opportunities
  • Discuss risks associated with storing data in the cloud
  • Select security architecture design principles
  • Create a data classification scheme and use this for managing risks with cloud solutions
  • Define security zones and a security architecture model
  • Identify and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different encryption technologies
  • List and prioritise business-critical operations for business continuity
  • Evaluate the benefits of an in-house incident response capability versus using a managed service model
