Dublin, Ireland (31/01/2017) — COLLEGE OF COMPUTING TECHNOLOGY (CCT), DUBLIN announced it has been designated as an ISACA Authorized Training Organization (ATO) to deliver Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) training. The cutting-edge CSX credentials help fill a critical global cybersecurity skills gap, and COLLEGE OF COMPUTING TECHNOLOGY (CCT), DUBLIN is helping make training widely available.

The CSX Practitioner (CSXP) training consists of skills-based courses that map to the Protect and Defend category of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework. The partnership with ISACA allows COLLEGE OF COMPUTING TECHNOLOGY (CCT), DUBLIN to meet the evolving needs of individuals interested in cybersecurity through this new noncredit training series mapped to ISACA’s globally-recognized certifications.

“The global cybersecurity skills shortage is more than evident, and companies worldwide have an emerging need for skilled cyber professionals,” said Christos K. Dimitriadis, Ph.D., CISA, CISM, CRISC, international president of ISACA. “ISACA is committed to helping close the skills gap by developing skills-based cybersecurity training and performancebased certification exams, and the ATOs are helping us accomplish this goal as global training providers.”

The courses increase in complexity and scope with each level. Participants are prepared to perform critical job functions such as protecting networks through threat and vulnerability identification, detecting incidents on corporate and government networks, and implementing response and recovery strategies after an incident occurs. Participants learn practical tactics and apply their skills practicing in real-time lab environments that span the five National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework domains.

The CSX Practitioner courses are designed for professionals who are in, or aspire to transition to, a cybersecurity position where they are expected to serve as a first responder to a cybersecurity incident. Courses are delivered in a live instructor-led format and are currently being offered at Dublin, Ireland.

“CCT, Dublin, is delighted to announce that it will be a provider of ISACA certified training programmes. Ireland has become the global technology hub of choice when it comes to attracting the strategic business activities of ICT companies.
