Privacy SIG: Highlighting NIST Privacy and Cybersecurity Workforce Initiatives

Presented by

Karen Wetzel - Manager, NICE Framework, NIST and Dylan Gilbert - Privacy Policy Advisor, NIST

About this talk

Privacy and cybersecurity are two of the hottest job categories in the modern economy. But what knowledge and skills should organizations be looking for? What training should candidates undergo? Join two people from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) who are leading the efforts to standardize education, training and jobs in the fields of privacy and cybersecurity. The Privacy Workforce Working Group (PWWG) aims to develop TKS (task, knowledge and skill) Statements aligned with the NIST Privacy Framework, version 1.0 which was released last year. The PWWG is led by four Co-chairs and hundreds of volunteers from across the privacy world. Dylan Gilbert, NIST Privacy Policy Advisor, one of the co-chairs, joins Karen Wetzel, manager of the National Initiative on Cybersecurity Education (NICE) to discuss the important work of the PWWG and the NICE Framework. NIST Special Publication 800-181 revision 1, the Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework), provides the set of building blocks for describing the tasks, knowledge, and skills (TKS) that are needed to perform cybersecurity work carried out by individuals and teams. Through these building blocks, the NICE Framework enables organizations to develop their workforces to perform cybersecurity work, and it helps learners explore cybersecurity careers and to engage in appropriate learning activities to develop their knowledge and skills.
