NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP) Courses Accredited by APMG International
LRS Education Services has been helping clients learn how to adopt and engineer a cybersecurity program using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework for nearly two years. Recently accredited by APMG International, the NCSP Training Program contains best practices and standards from both the private sector and government. Organizations in any industry will find the program applicable to address and manage cybersecurity risks in a cost-effective way based on particular needs without additional regulatory requirements.
Find out how the NCSP Training Program can transform your internal workforce into skilled workers who secure, maintain, and continually improve a plan of action to increase cybersecurity based on the NCSF Framework. In addition to NCSP training, our customized LRS NCSF Assessment Program works directly with organizational staff to analyze and align current cybersecurity policies and tools to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.
"I would highly recommend both the course and instructor to anyone interested in applying risk to cybersecurity in a practical setting."
