New! Announcing NICE Framework Success Stories


NICE Framework Success Stories IMAGE

The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework) helps learners explore cybersecurity work and enables cybersecurity workforce development via a core set of building blocks that describe tasks, knowledge, and skills. But knowing how to move from concept to application can sometimes be a challenge. Have you wondered:

  • How can my organization use the NICE Framework to reach goals?
  • What steps have others taken to implement the NICE Framework?
  • How can I find out more?

NICE is excited to announce NICE Framework Success Stories — a new publication series that profiles how an organization has used the NICE Framework, emphasizing the drivers, process, and outcomes, including benefits and lessons learned. View these to-the-point stories to improve your understanding of the NICE Framework and to get ideas on how to adopt it to meet your organizational needs today.

View Success Stories or consider submitting your own story.
