Leading Cybersecurity Educator Extends Cyber Certificate Program for University Partners into Enterprise Risk Management

Students obtain enterprise risk management experience and earn four certifications in one master cyber pathway program.

Washington, D.C. December 1st, 2019 – Mission Critical Institute, an educational provider that advances cybersecurity careers and thought leadership by developing cybersecurity education, training, and best practices, today announced the launch of a new sixth course in Enterprise Risk Management for the Certified Cybersecurity Cloud Risk Management Professional (CCRMP) certification.

The Misson Critical Institute helps students and working adults rapidly qualify for the project 3.5M unfilled cyber positions. Individuals looking to enter the Cybersecurity workforce can jump start their Cybersecurity career and begin the process of earning a six figure salary, while those in the current Cybersecurity workforce can significanlty upgrade their current career positions.

“Employers desperately need job-ready cloud security professionals. IT and cyber professionals need to demonstrate they are job-ready and able to mitgate enterprise risk against data breaches. This is why Mission Critical Institute has updated the Certified Cybersecurity Cloud Risk Management Professional credential with an extended course,” confirmed Dr. V. N. Berlin, Mission Critical Institute’s Chief Academic Officer. “The CCRMP is the first and only 100% hands-on, cloud security certification that validates that CCRMP recipients are job-ready and able to produce all NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF)/FedRAMP deliverables, demanded by more than half of US organizations.”

The CCRMP is recognized by the DOD and DHS and aligned to the NICE Cybersecurity job function workforce framework.

Many people are not aware that hundreds of thousands of cybersecurity positions in America are currently unfilled. And even fewer people know how broad and varied the field of cybersecurity actually is and how to construct a workforce that meets their mission goals. The NICE Framework, a program of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the U.S. Department of Commerce, categorizes and describes cybersecurity work for workforce developers, educators, and job seekers to explore specific work roles and knowledge, skills and abilities that are tied to each work role.

In addition a mapping between the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD) Knowledge Units (KUs) and the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Workforce Framework 2.0 has initially been developed aligning Cyber Security Education and Cyber Security Workforce.

The CCRMP credential is awarded based on actual demonstrated competencies evidenced by completion of cloud security risk management projects. The curriculum and coursework allows students to obtain the skills and experience to effectively produce the critical deliverables for all six steps of the NIST RMF and CSF as they apply to both on-premises and cloud-based systems.

As students make their way through the CCRMP – Certified Cybersecurity Cloud Risk Management Professional Boot Camps (the only performance-based cloud security bootcamp certification) they also prepare for the CISSP, CAP and CEH certifications. Students can earn four certificates, within the CCRMP pathway, the world’s most complete hands-on cybersecurity workforce program. Students get the skills they need to land a high-paying cybersecurity job and build a stable career.

The CCRMP is academically aligned to the NIST RMF and CSF and the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework and includes NIST RMF instruction & labs, FedRAMP instruction & labs, Vulnerability Management instruction & labs, 100% hands-on certification, 100% online accessibility, and multiple levels to job-readiness.

Mission Critical Institute authorized program partners provide 8, 16, 24, 36, and 42 week Online/Hybrid boot camps. Many also integrate the curriculum into existing associates, bachelors and masters degree academic programs through specific course and program articulation agreements. From Hacker 101 and Capture the Flag (for early students) to all levels of the Cybersecurity Boot Camp series, Enterprise Risk Management and the use of an enterprise Cyber Risk Management Dashboard, students and professionals rapidly advance their cybersecurity career by combining certifications; that all validate their experience and cybersecurity knowledge to employers.
