Requested on Proposed Updates to NICE Framework Work Role Categories and Work Roles

In our continuing effort to improve the Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework) as a fundamental reference resource, the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) announced on April 18, 2023 updates to NICE Framework Work Role Categories and Work Roles.  The proposed updates are based on feedback from the community during previous calls for comments, during regular engagement with stakeholders, and through consultations with subject matter experts. The updates focus on improving clarity, consistency, and accuracy to increase the usefulness of this resource.  Updates include: Minor changes to Work Role Category names, descriptions, and ordering.  Updates to Work Role names, minor updates to Work Role descriptions, and new Work Role IDs to reflect category updates and remove reference to deprecated Specialty Areas. An overview of the proposed updates is provided in “NICE Framework Work Role Categories and Work Roles: An Introduction and Summary of Proposed Updates”.
