Cybersecurity Framework Training: CSF Fundamentals


1 Day


Employees of federal, state and local governments; and businesses working with the government.

Course Description:

The Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) Fundamentals training program is suitable for government employees, contractors, and those employed in private industry who may have job roles which are not focused on Government. The nature of CSF as a voluntary and flexible framework with a goal of being cost-effective in promoting the protection and resilience of critical infrastructure and other sectors of the economy make it useful for an extremely broad audience.

CSF Fundamentals provides a high-level view of the Cybersecurity Framework. Discussion is centered on identifying the primary drivers (policy and guidance), differentiating amongst the Cybersecurity Framework Core (including functions, categories, subcategories and information references). Students will also learn to identify the various frameworks in the CSF references and describe the Framework profile as it relates to implementation tiers. Additional focus is placed upon the CSF self-assessment process as well as sector-specific guidance.
