Today, I have some exciting news for those of you interested in cybersecurity and risk management. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a renowned institution in the field, has recently launched four free, on-demand online courses. These courses are designed to introduce risk management concepts based on the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) methodology. They are perfect for individuals who are new to risk management and want to familiarise themselves with key publications associated with the RMF methodology for managing cybersecurity and privacy risk.
