Cyber Career Pathways New Features and Functionality

The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS) is pleased to announce the deployment of updated features and functionality to the Cyber Career Pathways tool.  

The updated Cyber Career Pathways Tool is now mobile device friendly and has new federal data to help you explore more career paths within the cyber workforce. The tool presents a new and interactive way to explore work roles within the NICE Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity.

It is designed for professionals looking to begin or advance their cyber career; employers and managers recruiting cyber talent, creating position descriptions, and guiding employees; and students and recent grads looking to identify work roles of interest and pursue training and certifications to prepare for a career in cybersecurity.

The Cyber Career Pathways Tool is developed and maintained in partnership with the Interagency Federal Cyber Career Pathways Working Group, led by CISA, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Cyber Career Pathways Tool is based on NIST Special Publication 800-181.
