The online program is specifically tailored to the needs of the broadcast industry and is available to NAB members and nonmembers.
Authored by Cynthia Brumfield, senior analyst and president, DCT Associates, the program’s learning objectives align with the most recent National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity released in May 2018. Through four online courses, participants will gain understanding in the following areas:
“The current threat environment frames the need for enhanced cybersecurity education at all levels. NAB is pleased to provide the latest education and training to further secure operations within the broadcast industry,” said NAB Senior Director of Technology Education and Outreach Brian Savoie.
In conjunction with these courses, DCT Associates has produced written companion guides that serve as useful reference tools for each course. The first two companion guides for Cyber Awareness for Broadcasters and Broadcast Executive Guide to Cybersecurity are available here. Additional companion guides for the other courses will be available soon.
