“DHS is committed to working with our partners in academia and throughout the private sector to develop the next generation of cyber professionals to protect against evolving cyber threats,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. “NICCS provides a comprehensive online resource for cyber education and training.”
NICCS leverages efforts of government, industry, and academia to provide a comprehensive, single resource to address the nation’s cybersecurity knowledge needs. This implementation tool supports the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), a nationally-coordinated effort that focuses on cybersecurity awareness, education, workforce structure, and training/professional development. NICCS makes research and training information available to federal employees and the public on a single website. This includes a robust, searchable catalog of cybersecurity training programs and certifications, which allow users to find trainings based on location, preferred delivery method, specialty area, or proficiency level.
