2019 National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week

Get Involved in National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week

National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week, brought to you by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), is an opportunity for government, business, education, community-based organizations, students, and workers to inspire, educate, and engage citizens to pursue careers in cybersecurity. The week-long campaign provides an opportunity to learn about the contributions and innovations of cybersecurity practitioners, and the plethora of job opportunities that can be found when exploring cybersecurity as a career choice.

We’re asking members of the NICE community to spread the word by using the hashtags #cybercareerweek and #mycyberjob. By doing so you’ll be joining a national movement to elevate and expand the conversation around the positive impact in building the cybersecurity workforce in America.

Additionally, you can join us in promoting awareness & exploration of cybersecurity careers by hosting an event or participating in an event near you! Make a commitment to participate. Commitments are actions taken by the community to promote awareness & exploration of cybersecurity careers. Commitments come in all sizes and don’t always require financial investment. You can host an event, distribute career awareness materials, or engage through social media. Be creative!
