NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0
Lead Auditor Training


The NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0 is now the global go-to strategy for establishing, managing, and maintaining comprehensive cybersecurity across the enterprise. 

Get trained and certified as an expert in auditing and assessing cybersecurity according to NIST CSF 2.0.

Certified NIST CSF Lead Auditor Training


Get trained as an expert in assessing and auditing cybersecurity according to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0

NIST CSF LI 250Assessing the organization’s cybersecurity program against the key capabilities and objectives is the cornerstone of cybersecurity improvement and optimization. Internal and external stakeholders have a vested interest in managing cyber risk, and measuring the organization’s cybersecurity processes, procedures, and controls against desired cybersecurity objectives provides the basis for identifying critical risk exposures and opportunities for improvement. NIST CSF 2.0 now provides 107 desired cybersecurity outcomes/objectives along with 367 implementation recommendations. In two short days, our certified NIST CSF 2.0 expert will lead you and your team through a hands-on assessment of these very implementation tasks. The Certified NIST CSF 2.0 LA certification validates your ability to audit and assess the formal structure, governance, and policy of a robust cybersecurity framework following internationally recognized and respected NIST best practices and standards. 

NIST CSF 2.0 Core desired outcomes can also be assessed for maturity of execution

Trying to assess a cybersecurity objective or desired outcome as simply “Incomplete”, “Partially Complete”, or “Complete” does not fully capture how mature the recommended tasks are implemented. Were a given cybersecurity objective and its corresponding implementation tasks well-planned? Were the tasks driven by documented policy? Were the implementation policy and procedures standardized throughout the organization, or do they differ from one department to another? Are metrics used and monitored to identify opportunities for improvement? These are some of the questions we should also consider as we assess every desired outcome and control objective’s level of maturity of execution. Determining Maturity Indicator Levels (MIL) is a critical part of a cybersecurity review, and your instructor will provide the seasoned guidance you and your fellow assessors/auditors need to perform the assessment properly.


The purpose of the 2-day course is to:

  • Provide thorough coverage of NIST CSF 2.0's 103 Core desired outcomes and 367 recommended tasks;
  • Understand how to measure and monitor an organization's cybersecurity risk management maturity tiers;
  • Prepare you for your NIST CSF certification exam required for Certified NIST CSF 2.0 Lead Auditor professional credentialing. Please note that the NIST CSF 2.0 Lead Auditor certification is a stacking credential that requires current CIS Certified NIST CSF 2.0 Lead Implementer certification as a prerequisite for Lead Auditor certification eligibility. The Lead Auditor program extends CSF 2.0 Lead Implementer knowledge with an advanced understanding of how to assess and audit the 103 goals and objectives of NIST CSF 2.0 and its 367 corresponding recommended implementation tasks.

Upon completion of this training and certificate program, participants will:

  • Be equipped with knowledge and skills required to audit NIST Cybersecurity Framework policy and program in line with the NIST CSF 2.0 and related standards of best practice;
  • Expand your cybersecurity competency; and
  • Be prepared to integrate a robust NIST Cybersecurity program into an ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS).
