Cyber Workforce Optimization: Leveraging skills within the NICE Framework

Presented by

Jeff Welgan, Chief Product Officer, CyberVista and Joseph Thompson, Senior Associate, Booz Allen Hamilton

About this talk

Of the 715,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs in the US, top titles include Cybersecurity Analysts, Network Engineers, and Software Developers. However, the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for these roles differ from organization to organization, making it challenging for employers to effectively source or develop talent and simultaneously frustrating for practitioners seeking employment. The Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity—or NICE Framework—was developed by NIST in an attempt to provide a taxonomy for standardizing cyber job roles and core competencies. However, with 52 specific cybersecurity roles, seven high-level, functional categories, and 33 specialty areas, it can be difficult to dissect, interpret, and apply to one’s organization. This webinar will simplify the framework and demonstrate how you can leverage it as a strategic guide in elevating your cybersecurity workforce. Join CyberVista Chief Product Officer, Jeff Welgan, and Booz Allen Hamilton Senior Associate, Joseph Thompson, for an in-depth discussion of how the NICE Framework and associated methodologies can positively impact: - Skills Identification: Define and measure proficiencies against role expectations - Career Mobility: Identify and hone transferable skills for various career transitions - Talent Sourcing: Simplify the sourcing and onboarding process for new talent
