National Initiative For Cybersecurity Education (NICE)

The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) is a partnership among government, academia, and the private sector focused on education, training, and workforce development that will strengthen the cybersecurity posture of organizations. This “cybersecurity workforce” includes those whose primary focus is on cybersecurity as well as those in the workforce who need specific cybersecurity-related knowledge and skills in order to perform their work in a way that enables organizations to properly manage the cybersecurity-related risks to the enterprise. The NICE Strategic Plan outlines the vision, mission, values, goals, and objectives for both the organization and the greater NICE community. It is the result of the extensive experience of – and engagement with – NICE partners.  NICE will develop implementation plans and metrics through a consultative process that includes the NICE Interagency Coordinating Council and the NICE Community Coordinating Council.  Actions based on this plan will be pursued and results achieved by organizations and individuals working collaboratively and through their independent efforts. NICE is led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Our courses are mapped to NICE.
