Security and Awareness Training

Security and Awareness Training (SAT) Federal Shared Service Providers (FSSPs) provide common suites of information systems security training products and services for the federal government. SAT FSSPs provide standardized skills and competencies in order to align with nationally recognized credentials, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidance and the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), for government Information System Security (ISS) roles.
