The NICE Framework is a study in evolution -- from its early beginnings in 2012 as a way to understand cybersecurity roles within the federal government to its subsequent expansion as a national framework for a wide community that includes government, industry, and academia. It is intended for use in large and small organizations across sectors in order to help recruit, develop, and retain cybersecurity talent. In this webinar you will hear about recent and upcoming developments with the NICE Framework as it continues to improve and grow into a tool that can be used both broadly and in unique, individual settings for a variety of purposes. You will hear from speakers who will paint a picture of how you might use the NICE Framework to meet your own needs while engaging with a community of users in order to meet a common goal -- a diverse, prepared, and effective cybersecurity workforce.
