Component 3: Cybersecurity Workforce
Cultivating an integrated cybersecurity workforce that is globally competitive from hire to retire, with the knowledge, skills, and ability to protect our nation from existing and emerging challenges.
Please visit the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS) portal to explore cybersecurity workforce initiatives more deeply. The portal offers the ability to explore cybersecurity career paths, explore degree programs and internship opportunities, learn about competitions, and find general information about cybersecurity education, training, and awareness.
NICCS is a national resource for cybersecurity awareness, education, careers, and training. The portal was developed to help build resources to elevate cybersecurity awareness and help affect a change in the American public to adopt a culture of cyberspace security and to build a competent cybersecurity workforce.
