National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE)

The need for highly skilled cybersecurity professionals is at all time high. The number of cybersecurity related jobs is higher than the number of people qualified to fill them—and that number is growing. The NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework is the foundation for increasing the size and capability of the U.S. cybersecurity workforce.

NICE Framework v1.0.0 has been released and here you'll find the latest courses with updated work roles and categories.
