C-SCRM - Fundamentals of Cybersecurity Supply Chain Risk Management (C-SCRM)

This two-day course consists not only of training in understanding Cybersecurity Supply Chain Risk Management (C-SCRM), but also provides guidance in preparing organizations to deal with the myriad of risks that come from the supply chain. It covers the basics of C-SCRM and then dives deeply into NIST C-SCRM guidance, integration into enterprise risk management, success factors, controls, and implementing effective C-SCRM through the lens of several realistic scenarios. Also included is a primer, linked to free templates, on creating your own C-SCRM program.

The Cybersecurity Supply Chain Risk Management (C-SCRM) course is appropriate for anyone who deals with risk, security, or technology related to the supply chain in an organization. This includes business, security, and IT professionals or anyone else who is a stakeholder in Cybersecurity Supply Chain Risk Management (C-SCRM). This course is specifically for those who have responsibility for or interest in C-SCRM. This is not a general IT security course.
