NIST Unveils Online Tool to Support Cyber Job Seekers & Employers

PeopleThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has unveiled a new interactive online tool developed to help cybersecurity job seekers find openings as well as assist employers with tasks to identify potential applicants.

NIST said Tuesday the CompTIA-developed CyberSeek online service and the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education introduced the system at the 2016 NICE conference in Missouri.

NICE helped helped fund the development of the tool.

“This interactive tool will assist its users — students, employees, employers, policy makers, training providers and guidance counselors — to explore opportunities they may have never considered,” said Rodney Petersen, NICE director.

NIST noted employers that seek to move or expand operations can use the CyberSeek map to identify locations with a large base of cybersecurity job seekers while applicants can look for openings based on the size of a metropolitan area.

CyberSeek will also look to provide guidance on how employees can advance in a cybersecurity career from entry-level positions to mid- and advanced-level jobs.
