The Fall 2022 NICE eNewsletter is available now. The NICE eNewsletter is published quarterly to provide information on academic, industry, and government developments related to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), updates from key NICE programs, projects, the NICE Community Coordinating Council, and other important news.
This quarter, our feature article this quarter makes the case for employers to embrace competencies-based learning when assessing candidates and making hiring decisions. Focusing on a student’s or job candidate’s competencies and skills – rather than degrees, for example – is not only more objective and equitable but also more efficient in determining successful career pathways. The Academic Spotlight describes a new partnership between the Defense Information Systems Agency and Capital Technology University to build a career pathway that provides opportunities for developing the necessary skills and competencies. Our Industry Spotlight highlights the critical need for software developers to focus on security earlier in the development process—known as “shifting left.” Finally, the Government Spotlight examines the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 and its implications for workforce development.
