itSM Solutions is a global consortium of industry thought leaders working together to create “how to” accredited cybersecurity training curriculum based on the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) Enterprise Risk Management Frameworks.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST-CSF) was created under Executive Order to provide a uniform standard that government and businesses could adopt to guide their cybersecurity activities and risk management programs.

The NIST Framework has now been approved as the governing framework for the US government, a growing number of critical infrastructure sectors (financial services, healthcare, energy etc.) and a long list of international governments.

The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) Enterprise Risk Management Framework was created to help executives prioritize cybersecurity investments by aligning those investments with the organizations enterprise risk management policies

The COSO Framework has now been approved as the governing framework for enterprise risk management by the American Accounting Association (AAA), American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), Financial Executives International (FEI), The Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) and The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA)

itSM’s NCSP client base spans the globe and includes organizations like Bank of America, USAA Insurance, General Motors, Barclays Bank, Yale University, UK Ministry of Defense, Australian Department of Revenue, British Telecom, SAP, Santander Bank and the State of Illinois

How we are different

Current cybersecurity training and consulting programs come up short in teaching organizations the skills they need to assess, engineer and implement a NIST/COSO aligned cybersecurity risk management program.

The NCSP Certification Training Programs teaches organizations how to:

– Assess and understand its current cybersecurity state

– Design a cybersecurity program using the COSO guidance and NIST-CSF informative reference controls to realize its future cybersecurity state

– Implement & Operationalize a Continual Implementation & Improvement Management System (CIIS) to automate, sustain and continually improve its future cybersecurity state.
