Comment on Proposed Updates to the NICE Framework


NICE is continuing to refine and clarify the Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework) as a fundamental reference resource that is agile, flexible, modular, and interoperable.

Proposed Insider Threat Analysis Work Role
NICE is proposing one new Work Role for addition to the NICE Framework: Insider Threat Analysis. 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.

Comments on the proposed new Work Role are due by December 22, 2023.

Refactored Task Statements
Proposed updates to the NICE Framework Task statements follow the principles set forth in the Task, Knowledge, Skill (TKS) Statements Authoring Guide for Workforce Frameworks. Updates include improvements for:

  • Consistency: Statements follow a common structure that begins with the activity to be executed and focus on the work to be done (not the knowledge or skills needed to do that work)
  • Clarity: Statements are clearly stated
  • Redundancy: Statements are unique and do not duplicate or unnecessarily overlap with others
  • Compound statements: Statements do not include more than one task

Comments on the proposed updates to Task statements are due by January 29, 2024.


All comments should be submitted by email to NICEFramework [at] (NICEFramework[at]nist[dot]gov).
