NIST unveils cybersecurity education plan
Monday - 8/15/2011, 6:51am EDT
The plan, part of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education program — known as NICE — is the cornerstone of a larger national campaign to increase cyber awareness and training at all levels.
"This plan represents the coordinated thinking of the federal agencies that have leading roles in NICE," said Ernest McDuffie, who heads the NICE program, in a release. "We are soliciting feedback from the larger population to inform and improve the planning process for this comprehensive national initiative."
NIST will take public comments on the plan through Sept. 12. The agency is also hosting a workshop, "Shaping the Future of Cybersecurity Education — Engaging Americans in Securing Cyberspace," scheduled for Sept. 20-22 at the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, Md.
