NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP®)

Learn the cybersecurity controls and management systems skills required to deliver on an organization’s strategic plan.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework was created under executive order to provide a uniform standard that the government and businesses could adopt to guide their cybersecurity activities and risk management programs. This NIST Cybersecurity Professional (NCSP®) training program teaches individuals and organizations how to engineer, operationalize, and continually improve a NIST Cybersecurity Framework program. NIST Cybersecurity certificates give professionals a competitive edge in understanding the challenges associated with digital services.

The foundation certificate is a prerequisite for taking the practitioner certificate.


Bryant University’s NIST Cybersecurity certificates are accredited through APMG International, certified in the U.K. by the National Cyber Security Centre, and listed as qualified cyber training by the Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency in the U.S.
