The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE)
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) is a nationally coordinated effort including more than 20 federal departments and agencies, academia, and industry. The goals of this initiative are to 1) maintain a globally-competitive cybersecurity workforce; and, 2) broaden the pool of skilled workers able to support a cyber-secure nation. One of the most important aspects of cybersecurity workforce planning is identifying the workforce and numerous workload requirements that impact the nature of the work performed.
The Cybersecurity Workforce Framework provides a systematic way for educators, students, employers, employees, training providers, and policymakers to organize the way they think and talk about cybersecurity work and workforce requirements.
All McAfee Institute Board Certification programs have been mapped to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) framework and recognized by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Career& Studies (NICCS) by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
