National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies

NICCS is an online resource for government, industry, academia, and the general public to learn about cybersecurity awareness, education, careers and workforce development opportunities.

Why do we need NICCS?

There is a lot of cybersecurity information on the web. However, in many cases, it is hard to tell how credible the information housed on those websites actually is. NICCS serves as that resource to provide the nation with credible and real-time information related to cybersecurity.

What are some of the key features on NICCS?

The Portal includes a plethora of information, including information about:

  • Awareness resources, such as a Cybersecurity How-To Guides
  • Education resources including curricula, multimedia, and reference materials for teachers, a listing of cybersecurity degree programs, scholarship opportunities, and information on cyber competitions;
  • Training resources, including the interactive training catalog; and
  • Careers resources, including career roadmaps, which show how to enter and progress in a cybersecurity career.

The goal of NICCS is to provide a single online resource for anything related to cybersecurity.
