National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week is Here!

#cybercareerweek | #mycyberjob

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.

Join us in encouraging awareness and exploration of cybersecurity careers through written or online announcements and resources, conducting outreach to share your career insights with youth or adults, or hosting or participating in an event near you! Throughout the week, you can help spread the word by posting to Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms using #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.

Here's how you can get involved!
