The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS) is part of NIST’s NICE program, which includes a robust framework that defines 7 Specialty Areas and 52 Work Roles. To ensure the quality of the NICCS Education and Training Providers, the NICCS Supervisory Office created a set of vetting criteria. This criterion validates that the courses listed in the catalog are offered by organizations recognized for providing quality resources aligned to the NICE Framework.
“As technology advances, we must develop a workforce of well-trained cybersecurity professionals. The substantial investment made by the U.S. in programs like NICCS helps identify high-quality education and training programs needed to advance careers and close the skill gaps in the cybersecurity workforce,” said Lisa Parcella, Vice President of Product Management. “The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards are further validation that this company is building industry-leading solutions to address that very challenge.”
