Last week at the NICE Conference and Expo in Kansas City, MO , it was announced that the draft NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF), is now open for feedback. The NCWF was designed to serve several key groups, including employers, current cybersecurity staff, students and workers considering a career in the field, educators and workforce trainers, and technology providers. It provides a common language to categorize and describe cybersecurity work to help organizations build a strong staff to protect their systems and data. Read the full press release here.

CyberSeek, an interactive resource for cybersecurity career information, was also unveiled at the NICE conference on November 1, 2016. Through a partnership between NICE, CompTIA, and Burning Glass, CyberSeek was developed to provide a visual representation of cybersecurity supply and demand across the nation. CyberSeek also features a Career Pathways tool which provides information on different types of positions to help students, job seekers, and workforce trainers visualize career advancement in cybersecurity. The Map and Career Pathway tools both incorporate the job categories, specialty areas, and knowledge, skills, and abilities from the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework.

The Colloquium recognizes that the protection of information and infrastructures that are used to create, store, process, and communicate information is vital to business continuity and security. The Colloquium's goal is to work together to define current and emerging requirements for information assurance education and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information assurance curricula, especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
