The 2013 NICE Workshop will have webcasts of all sessions during the full three days of the workshop. Please visit Webcasts for Tracks & Abstracts (no longer available) for further information.

The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) will host its annual “Shaping the Future of Cybersecurity Education Workshop” at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) location in Gaithersburg, MD. The NICE Initiative is focused on enhancing the overall cybersecurity posture of the United States by accelerating the availability of educational and training resources designed to improve the cyber behavior, skills, and knowledge of every segment of the population.

The 2013 NICE Workshop theme is "Navigating the National Cybersecurity Education Interstate Highway". The Workshop will highlight cybersecurity education concepts, tools, and best practices with a focus on successes at the State and Federal levels. The goal is to highlight cybersecurity awareness, education, and training programs that can be adopted, copied, or used, or built-on by small businesses, educational institutions, industry, and government at the states, local, tribal and Federal levels to advance the strategic goals of NICE.

The workshop asks presenters, panelists, and participants to share information and use lessons learned and best practices to help attendees grow their cybersecurity toolkit and remind everyone of the critical role each plays in advancing the strategic goals of NICE:

  1. Raise national awareness about risks in cyberspace;

  2. Broaden the pool of individuals prepared to enter the cybersecurity workforce; and

  3. Cultivate a globally competitive cybersecurity workforce.
