Cybersecurity is still in it’s infancy as an academic discipline. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) developed the Cybersecurity Workforce Training Guide as a resource to help professionals and organizations understand the Work Roles, Tasks, and Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) of the various, and highly divergent, specialties of this field. This guide is a tool you can use to identify skill gaps in your workforce and standardize your recruiting and hiring process.
“The NICE Framework enables the use of a consistent, comparable, and repeatable approach to select and specify cybersecurity roles for positions within organizations. It also provides a common lexicon that academic institutions can use to develop cybersecurity curricula that better prepares students for current and future cybersecurity workforce needs.” — CISA Cybersecurity Workforce Training Guide
