Building a community of champions to develop a knowledgeable, skilled, and diverse cybersecurity workforce


The Cybersecurity Career Ambassador Program seeks to create a network of employers, educators, and others who serve as champions to prepare, grow, and sustain a diverse and skilled cybersecurity workforce. 

Ambassadors will:

  • Inspire, engage, and inform career seekers and the public about the workforce demand, learning opportunities, and multiple career pathways available to pursue a career in cybersecurity
  • Demystify careers in cybersecurity by showcasing the different learning pathways and variety of credentials that lead to careers identified as work roles in the NICE Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework)
  • Support successful programs and resources that develop a highly skilled and diverse workforce, especially those that increase the participation of women, minorities, veterans, persons with disabilities, and other underrepresented populations

If you have a passion to inspire others to pursue a career in cybersecurity, consider joining our Cybersecurity Career Ambassador Community of Interest! If you are already a member of the Community of Interest and would like to learn more about how to become an Ambassador, contact: niceamb [at] (niceamb[at]nist[dot]gov).


NICE is a community working together to advance an integrated ecosystem of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development.  NICE, led by the National Institute for Standards and Technology within the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC), is committed to preparing, growing, and sustaining a cybersecurity workforce that safeguards and promotes America’s national security and economic prosperity.
