Frequently asked questions

What is the NIST framework?

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a comprehensive set of guidelines and best practices for managing and reducing cybersecurity risks. It is a voluntary framework that provides businesses of all sizes with best practices to understand their potential risk — and guidelines on how to reduce or manage those risks.

Some of the key aspects of the NIST framework include:

Does NIST provide a NIST CSF certification?

No, NIST does not provide certifications related to its Cybersecurity Framework, and it has no plans to do so. As the name suggests, it is simply a framework for public and private sector organizations to use and build upon. This boot camp helps you understand how the framework works and implement the framework within your organization.

You're in good company


The course was extremely helpful and provided exactly what we needed to know in order to successfully navigate the exam. Without this, I am not confident I would have passed.

Robert Caldwell, Salient Federal Solutions


The instructor was able to take material that prior to the class had made no sense, and explained it in real world scenarios that were able to be understood.

Erik Heiss, United States Air Force


Very impressed with Infosec. My instructor did a great job delivering the information strategically and in a way for all to understand. I would definitely take another class/certification prep course.
