NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework

You or other leaders within your organization are likely to be familiar with the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF). In creating Critical Knowledge we worked with several organizations to understand actual cybersecurity job roles and their required skills. The result is our detailed taxonomy aligned to the NCWF that serves as a roadmap to identify the skill and knowledge gaps between roles and levels in the enterprise.  Using this roadmap, individuals have a clear path forward with training across seven foundational units.
