Cyber attacks are increasing in sophistication and frequency, yet the shortage of skilled technical professionals has continued to grow exponentially. ISACA's Cybersecurity Nexus™ (CSX) was created to help fortify the industry through practical, hands-on training and certification focused on real-world abilities. Our goal is to build a stronger, more informed workforce that can keep organizations and their information secure—now, and in the future.
To help you and your business stay secure, we have put together a number of helpful, free resources and tools.

Cybersecurity is typically approached, analyzed and managed from a functional point of view. Enterprises typically spend considerable time and resources analyzing their security programs—and by extension the countermeasures comprising them—through the lens of scope and function. But measuring coverage and utility is not enough anymore as cybersecurity is not about a series of tasks.
As demonstrated in this FREE ISACA-CMMI white paper, A Risk-Aware Path to Cybersecurity Resilience and Maturity, cybersecurity professionals must consider business strategy planning and performance capability. Analyzing the capability of cybersecurity within an enterprise means systematically and holistically analyzing the operational efficiency of actions taken, resiliency of the people/processes/technology in use, maturity of practices, gap analyses, and total cost of ownership, and more, together with effectiveness, and doing it comprehensively and consistently across the axis of risk.
This joint white paper from ISACA and CMMI outlines a path forward using a new mindset and new tools to assess cyber capability and create a new culture of cybersecurity.

There are some debates that just never go away: Coke vs. Pepsi, regular vs. extra crispy and, in the security world, full disclosure (or even the somewhat more restrictive responsible disclosure model) vs. limited disclosure. While there has always been a robust debate around how much to disclose about vulnerabilities (not to mention when and to whom), recent events have pushed the debate back to the forefront. It's a thorny issue, and one where the risk dynamics are not always clear.
To help gain perspective about both sides, we’ve asked 2 experts—each on opposite ends of the disclosure spectrum—to share their opinions about the issue. They are both passionate about their points of view and have decades of experience. It’s our hope that, by sharing both points of view, practitioners can both understand their own position better, think through the position of the other side and, ultimately, end up with a more nuanced understanding of the issue.
