The NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NICE Framework), published as National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-181, in August 2017, is a national-focused resource that categorizes and describes cybersecurity work. The NICE Framework is meant to be a living document and is intended to continuously evolve to help address the growing need for cybersecurity practitioners. NIST has announced plans to update the NICE Framework and issued a Request For Comments to collect feedback from the public on how to improve the NICE Framework, understand level of awareness of the NICE Framework, and document applications and uses of the NICE Framework. This webinar will feature representatives from the NICE Framework core authoring team, including the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Labor, and NIST to provide an overview of the plans to update the NICE Framework as well as details on how to submit comments to NIST.
