NCWF – A Framework for Building the Next-Generation of Cyber Security Professionals
The NCWF was developed by the U.S. Government’s National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) and categorizes and describes cyber security job roles so that managers can:

  • Have a systematic way to plan and implement improvements in their organization’s cyber security measures
  • Determine requirements and methods for training a modern cyber security workforce

The NCWF has seven high-level categories, each comprised of several specialty areas. Each specialty area is comprised of tasks and Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSAs) required to complete the tasks. In essence, the NCWF defines the competencies required to develop IT professionals who are properly prepared to protect their organization.

“We are committed to working with NICE to provide training that is aligned with the NCWF so that cyber professionals have the knowledge and skills to optimally defend their organization against a wide spectrum of cyber threats now and in the future,” said Greg Adams, Learning Tree’s Chief Operating Officer.

Recognizing October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month
During National Cyber Security Awareness Month, public and private sector partners are encouraged to educate and raise awareness about cyber security threats and best practices throughout their organizations. This year’s themes include:

  • Creating a Culture of Cybersecurity at Work
  • Building the Next Generation of Cyber Professionals

“A prime emphasis of this year’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month is the need for properly trained cyber security professionals,” says Amin Lalji, cyber security expert and Learning Tree author/instructor. “The best defense against current and future cyber threats is a well-trained staff. The ideal cyber security training plan is tailored to the needs of your employees, ensuring you have the right people with the right skills in the right positions using the right processes.”
