'I was well prepared and passed the NCSP Boot Camp exam on the first try. The NCSP courses helped me learn the knowledge, skills, and capabilities to engineer, operationalize, and continually improve a cybersecurity program based on the NIST cybersecurity framework. The instructor did a great job in presenting the materials and connecting it back to real-world examples. Thank you, for all your help! I will highly recommend the NCSP courses to my colleagues across the globe.'
