NCWF: Public Comments Due 06 JAN 17

WASHINGTON (US-CERT.gov) — The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) developed the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF) to define the cybersecurity workforce and provide a common taxonomy and lexicon by which to classify, code, and categorize workers.

bdpatoday | December 2016The Workforce Framework lists and defines over 30 specialty areas and 50 work roles that comprise cybersecurity work and provides a description of each. Each of the types of work is placed into one of the above listed seven overall categories. The NCWF also identifies common tasks and knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA’s) associated with each work role. The NCWF can be used by private, public, and academic industry sectors to describe cybersecurity work and workforces, with related education, training, and professional development.

The NCWF is the output of a collaboration of more than 20 Federal departments, agencies, and numerous engagements with academic and industry organizations.

A draft update to the NICE Framework NIST Special Publication 800-181 is posted for public review, suggestions, and comments. Review with chapters to provide comments before January 6, 2017.
