Illustrative mapping of certifications to NICE Framework

The illustrative mapping, first shared in October 2018, is undergoing an update to improve its utility to our community. Original points of contact for 2 of the 3 mapping showing the certifications they valued for many of the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework work roles have transitioned. Those opinions need to be updated and additional input needs to be added to an update that will be posted later this year. NICE encourages anyone offering training and certifications to show in their literature and website how their offerings align with the NICE Framework and to make sure their offerings are included in the DHS Education and Training Catalog.
