The platform displays core attributes within 52 different work roles and highlights the cyber workforce into five skill communities. The tool also presents actionable insights for users who are considering to take cyber careers.

CISA partnered with the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to develop and maintain the tool.
