- We talk about cybersecurity a lot as it pertains to the government and federal workspace. But now, cybersecurity training is expanding beyond agencies and into high schools, libraries and other workplaces. It's called the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE, for short). The interagency program is being run by Dr. Ernest McDuffie at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He joins us to discuss why the program was started and what the government hopes to get out of it.
