As your organization develops defensive cyber security capabilities it may become necessary to hire additional employees or outsource tasks to a trusted partner. The Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework), NIST Special Publication 800-181, provides a lexicon of security Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) that these cybersecurity roles require.
“Cybersecurity is a rapidly changing and expanding field. This expansion requires a cadre of skilled workers to help organizations perform cybersecurity functions. As organizations identify what is needed to adequately manage current and future cybersecurity risk, leaders need to consider the cybersecurity workforce capabilities and capacity needed.”–NIST.SP.800-181
