The Nation’s cybersecurity workforce is at the forefront of protecting critical infrastructure and computer networks from attack by foreign nations, criminal groups, hackers, and terrorist organizations. Today, the cybersecurity community has evolved enough to define a National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework for understanding specialty areas of cybersecurity work and workforce needs.
As the demands of global business, computing, and society continue to revolve around the information, communication and technology (ICT) sector, cybersecurity workload is increasing faster than cybersecurity professionals can meet the demand. Workforce planning must be expanded to address demand issues and close the workforce gap in a systematic way that includes strategies that include minorities.
This site is focused on the specific cybersecurity work role in the Analyze NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework Category. The Analyze category performs highly-specialized review and evaluation of incoming cybersecurity information to determine its usefulness for intelligence. The Specialty Area "All-Source Analysis" analyzes threat information from multiple sources, disciplines, and agencies across the Intelligence Community. Synthesizes and places intelligence information in context; draws insights about the possible implications.
Below the Work Role "All-Source Analysis" is described in detail to include the NICE career information on Knowledges, Skills and Abilities (KSAs) required for the role, as well as Tasks performed by the role. This organizing structure is based on extensive job analyses that groups together work and workers that share common major functions, regardless of job titles or other occupational terms.
The Minority Cyber Inclusion Council works to bridge the gap between industry, government and education in order to inform the minority community about the growing employment and training opportunities.
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework provides a blueprint to categorize, organize, and describe cybersecurity work into Categories, Specialty Areas, Work Roles, tasks, and knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs). The NICE Framework provides a common language to speak about cyber roles and jobs and helps define personal requirements in cybersecurity.
Analyzes data/information from one or multiple sources to conduct preparation of the environment, respond to requests for information, and submit intelligence collection and production requirements in support of planning and operations.
