October 16-21, 2023
Cybersecurity Career Week (formerly Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week) occurs every third week of October. In its 7th year, we’re making a conscious effort to go beyond simply raising awareness of cybersecurity careers and to help drive community members to action. Cybersecurity Career Week will now also focus on sharing resources that increase understanding of the multiple learning pathways and credentials that lead to cybersecurity careers.
The new name supports the existing goals of the annual campaign:
You are cordially invited to join us in observing Cybersecurity Career Week! You can host an event, distribute career information, or engage with others through social media. Be on the lookout in the following months as we share more information about how to get involved and steps you can take to make your Cybersecurity Career Week commitments.
Did you know that Cyber Crime Investigation is among the Top Five positions of employment within the Federal government? A Cyber Crime Investigator conducts detailed investigations of cyberspace-based crimes by identifying, collecting, examining, and preserving evidence using controlled and documented analytical and investigative techniques.
Cybersecurity Career Week is coordinated by NICE and supported by a community of government, academic, non-profit, and private industry stakeholders.
