ABSTRACT

2012 Information Technology Workforce Assessment for Cybersecurity (ITWAC): Summary Report   [open pdf - 2MB]

"The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) partnered with the Federal Chief Information Officer's (CIO) Council to develop and distribute the 2012 Information Technology Workforce Assessment for Cybersecurity (ITWAC). NICE evolved from the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) Initiative 8- Expand Cyber Education, to develop a technologically-skilled and cyber-savvy workforce with the right knowledge and skills. The ITWAC was developed to collect workforce data that would help identify the composition and capabilities of the federal civilian cybersecurity workforce. The assessment can help federal departments and agencies: 1) Understand the scope of the cybersecurity workforce pipeline; 2) Establish a baseline of current cybersecurity capabilities and proficiencies among the Federal workforce; and 3) Identify the general training needs of the cybersecurity workforce. The ITWAC is similar to the 2011 Information Technology Workforce Capability Assessment (ITWCA), conducted by the Federal CIO Council, and is largely based on the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (the Framework). The Framework was developed by NICE using existing cybersecurity research, such as the Federal CIO Council Matrix Project."
