This National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Interagency Report (NISTIR) is a compendium of computer security training and awareness courses. The purpose of this publication is to assist federal agencies locate computer security training resources. This publication is part of a continuing NIST effort to support federal agencies in accordance with NIST’s mandate under the Computer Security Act of 1987. In addition to the table of contents, which lists the courses, there are four appendices: A) lists the courses by training areas within audience categories as defined in NIST Special Publication 500-172, Computer Security Training Guidelines: B) lists the vendors that participated in this effort; C) lists the specific products for which training is available; and D) lists the product specific courses.
NIST Special Publication 500-172 was developed to provide a framework for identifying computer security training requirements for diverse audiences. It focuses on learning objectives based upon the extent to which computer security knowledge is required by individuals as it applies to their job function.
A training matrix was introduced in Special Publication 500-172 to assist agencies in designing training that meets the learning objectives for a particular group. The training and awareness courses in this compendium have been mapped to the matrix (see appendix E) by the training organization/vendor.
