Evolving the Workforce Community of Interest
May 9, 2019 • 10-11:30 a.m.
Featured Topic: Cyber Career Pathways Project - Interagency Working Group Briefing
• Welcome and Introductions
• Updates from COI Leadership
• Presentation: Cyber Career Pathways Project - Interagency Working Group Briefing
The presentation features representatives from a Federal Interagency Working Group on their current project to deliver a Federal career path standard framework unique to each of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) National Initiatives for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework’s (NICE Framework) 52 Work Roles. Understanding these career paths will be important both to managers and staff in cyber security roles, as well as to the human capital workers involved in hiring and developing agencies’ cyber workforces.
The ultimate goal of this Working Group is to deliver a standard Federal career pathway framework unique to each NIST NICE Framework Work Role. Career pathways are designed to support cyber professionals, their supervisors, and human capital professionals with conducting workforce assessment and planning, creating position descriptions (PDs), identifying current training needs and professional development opportunities, recruitment and retention, and improving job satisfaction through rewarding and challenging career opportunities. Career pathways will be designed as ladders unique to each Work Role while also identifying points of intersection for transition opportunities among work roles, as well as transferable competencies.
