NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework

Presented by

Sarah Moffat and Lynn Terwoerds

About this talk

Companies across America are competing for cyber talent. With over 500,000 vacant cyber jobs, the competition is fierce. We've heard a lot of talk about recruiting creatively and 'overcoming the skills gap,' but what are the practical things organizations can do today to help bring in the talent? The NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework offers us the foundation of a solution. Join us for a BrightTalk about how to apply the Framework to not only retain your current cyber-ready workforce but recruit the workforce of the future The NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework outlines 52 work roles and the requisite knowledge, skills, abilities, and tasks needed to execute the roles. But how can companies apply the Framework to not only retain the current cyber-ready workforce but recruit cyber workers for the future? There are currently over 500,000 vacant cybersecurity jobs nationally, and a "very low" supply of cybersecurity workers. Major companies across the country are working hard to overcome this skills gap – competing with each other for cyber talent — through expanding recruitment, focusing on core requirements for jobs, and making career paths more understandable and accessible. Join us for a BrightTalk to discuss what practical solutions companies can employ starting today to bring in more talent. This is certainly a time to do more than talk about solutions -- this is a time to roll up our sleeves, get out there and recruit, reskill, and upskill our workforce. During this session, we'll not only talk about things companies can do today, but also ways that you can set yourself up for success in the future -- with a key element of the discussion focusing on the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework and how to apply it for job, career, and professional development.
