NICE Framework Resource Center

The NICE Framework is a fundamental reference for describing and sharing information about cybersecurity work.

The Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework), NIST Special Publication 800-181, is a fundamental reference for describing and sharing information about cybersecurity work in the form of Task Statements and Work Roles that perform those tasks. The NICE Framework establishes a taxonomy and common lexicon that describes cybersecurity work and workers irrespective of where or for whom the work is performed. The NICE Framework is intended to be applied in the public, private, and academic sectors.
