Description

In today’s organizations, managing cybersecurity can seem to be a daunting task. The constant threat of a breach, balancing a shrinking cybersecurity budget, and the ever-present laws and regulations that govern data protection all make for a complex, difficult job. Add the routine work involved in managing the mission, resources, and strategy of an organization, and it’s easy to see why many organization leaders are ineffective at managing their cybersecurity programs. In this course, Implementing the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity in Your Organization, you’ll learn the purpose and structure of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and how the NIST CSF integrates with the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF). First, you’ll explore the core 5 CSF functions and how their categories and subcategories integrate into the RMF, as well as how to use those CSF functions to build an effective cybersecurity management program. Next, you'll discover the CSF tiers, and how they measure the depth of rigor of a cybersecurity program. Then, you’ll learn how profiles are used to tailor the CSF and the RMF to a particular industry segment, such as manufacturing, energy, and telecommunications. Finally, you’ll understand how to integrate the CSF with the organization’s cybersecurity program management and the RMF, focusing on real-world challenges and solutions. By the end of this course, you'll understand how to adopt and implement the CSF in your organization to manage all aspects of your cybersecurity assets.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Bobby Rogers and welcome to the Pluralsight course, Implementing the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity in Your Organization. I'm a senior cybersecurity engineer and I work as a contractor securing information systems for the U.S. Government. Do you need to manage cybersecurity in your organization, but you don't know where to begin? If you need to establish or improve a cybersecurity management program, NIST's Cybersecurity Framework, or CSF, can help you get there. That's why we produced this course that covers how the CSF can help you manage cybersecurity throughout the organization, establishing a formal process that makes sense, and integrates with NIST's Risk Management Framework, or RMF. We're going to discuss and demonstrate the key functions you need to perform to effectively manage cybersecurity using the NIST CSF. Some of the major topics that we will cover include core functions, categories and subcategories, implementation tiers, cybersecurity profiles unique to industry segments, how the CSF integrates with the NIST RMF, and how to implement the Cybersecurity Framework in your organization. By the end of this course, you'll understand how to adopt and implement the CSF in your organization to manage all aspects of your cybersecurity assets. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with security management processes, the fundamentals of risk management and the NIST RMF. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about cybersecurity management with the Implementing the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity in Your Organization course, from Pluralsight.
