NICE has proposed a new Work Role for addition to the NICE Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework) and the comment deadline is quickly approaching! Please share your thoughts by email to NICEFramework [at] nist.gov (NICEFramework[at]nist[dot]gov) by December 22, 2023.
Proposed 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 as part of an enterprise cybersecurity risk program. 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 and manage cybersecurity risks. This proposed role includes a name, description, and Task, Knowledge, and Skill (TKS) statements. It also identifies the Work Role category this role would fall under.
Proposed updates to the NICE Framework Task statements have also been announced. These updates include improvements that address consistency, clarity, and redundancy in alignment with the Task, Knowledge, Skill (TKS) Statements Authoring Guide for Workforce Frameworks. Comments on the proposed updates to Task statements are due by January 29, 2024.
All comments should be submitted by email to NICEFramework [at] nist.gov (NICEFramework[at]nist[dot]gov).
