The NICE Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework) includes over 50 Work Roles – groupings of work for which an individual or team is responsible – across seven Work Role categories. NICE is proposing one new Work Role for addition to the NICE Framework:
Insider Threat Analysis Work Role
As insider threats and their tactics have evolved to encompass network and digital assets, analysts with cybersecurity skills are required to examine and respond to those threats. Codifying the Insider Threat Analysis Work Role in the NICE Framework supports learning and career pathways that help ensure that organizations are well equipped to address insider threats. This proposed role includes a name, description, Task statements, and identifies the category to which it best fits.
NICE welcomes comments on the proposed Work Role from all interested parties. Comments on the draft Work Role should be submitted by email to NICEFramework [at] nist.gov (NICEFramework[at]nist[dot]gov) by 11:59 pm ET on December 22, 2023.
