Partnerships to Build the Cybersecurity Workforce
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education, led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is pleased to announce the NIST Internal Report (NISTIR) 8287: A Roadmap for Successful Regional Alliances and Multistakeholder Partnerships to Build the Cybersecurity Workforce.
In September 2016, five pilot programs were awarded funding to take a regional approach to solving the national cybersecurity workforce challenge. NISTIR 8287 provides a summary of the five programs and outlines a roadmap for building similar programs based on the best practices found and lessons learned.
The roadmap for successful alliances to build the cybersecurity workforce requires four primary components:
Each section of the roadmap provides specific examples and activities that the pilot programs found to be successful and repeatable in other efforts.
