NCSP Foundation

Accredited Training Course and Exam in only 1 Day

To realize the positive potential of technology and inspire confidence to achieve innovation through technology, we must collectively manage cyber-risks to an acceptable level. This includes both business risk and technology risks.

This one-day course discusses how an organization can use the NIST Framework as a key part of its systematic process for identifying, assessing, and managing cybersecurity risk. The Framework is not designed to replace existing processes; an organization can use its current process and overlay it onto the Framework to determine gaps in its current cybersecurity risk approach and develop a roadmap to improvement. Utilizing the Framework as a cybersecurity risk management tool, an organization can determine activities that are most important to critical service delivery and prioritize expenditures to maximize the impact of the investment. All candidates that are successful in passing the certification exam will receive a verified digital badge NIST Cybersecurity Professional Foundation Certificate that they can post to their LinkedIn profiles.


The session NCSP Foundation (1 Day) is mainly aimed at IT and Business professionals who need a basic understanding of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and its role within an organization.

This course and the NCSP Foundation Certificate (exam taken at the end of the session) are the mandatory entry point for any person wanting to obtain the NIST Cybersecurity Professional Practitioner Certificate.
