The National Institute of Standards and Technology is inviting interested government, academic and corporate personnel to become part of a new working group under the agency-led National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education.
NIST said Thursday the NICE Working Group seeks members to identify new strategies to address the cybersecurity skills gap in the U.S.
The working group will have subgroups for competitions, workforce framework, training and certifications, career development and workforce planning, K-12 and collegiate programs, NIST noted.
NICE program leaders plan to hold a kickoff teleconference on Wednesday to discuss the working group’s objectives and member roles.
Group meetings are scheduled to occur on the fourth Wednesday of each month.
