The NICE Workforce Diagnostic provides cybersecurity leaders with a baseline into competency areas of strength and weakness covering all seven categories of the Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework). Developed by NIST, the NICE Framework establishes a common lexicon of cybersecurity-related competencies that can be applied to any organization and cybersecurity job role. As the name suggests, the NICE Workforce Diagnostic is a diagnostic solution designed to help organizations align their people initiatives to the NICE framework.
The diagnostic is delivered in two parts. First, participating practitioners complete an initial assessment that can be completed in 45 minutes or less. Unlike knowledge assessments or employee screening tools, the diagnostic includes questions that go beyond simple multiple choice to truly capture comprehension at the practitioner level.
Upon your team’s completion of the diagnostic assessment, designated leaders will gain access to a written Insights Report with actionable training recommendations and/or an interactive Insights Dashboard. The dashboard includes filters for demographics, job roles, experience, and specific areas of the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework to uncover further insights and to support talent applications and initiatives.
There are no formal prerequisites for practitioners taking the NICE Workforce Diagnostic. However, this diagnostic assessment is best suited for individuals who have up to 10 years of experience in cybersecurity or information technology roles.
After taking the NICE Workforce Diagnostic, the CyberVista team will make custom training and workforce development recommendations for how to best remediate areas of weakness and build upon areas of strength.
