Abstract

The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) aims to create an operational, sustainable, and continually improving program for cybersecurity awareness, education, training, and workforce development. As part of the initiative, the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework aims to codify cybersecurity talent; define the cybersecurity workforce in common terms; and tie the workforce's various jobs, competencies, and responsibilities into a common architecture.
