About NICCS

NICCS is an online resource for cybersecurity training that connects Government employees, students, educators, and industry with cybersecurity training providers throughout the Nation.

The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers & Studies (NICCS)  is the nation’s one-stop shop for cybersecurity careers and studies. It connects the public with information on cybersecurity awareness, degree programs, training, careers, and talent management. As of September 2018, the Training Catalog connects the public to over 4,000 courses every day.

Cybersecurity professionals are in high demand.  Experts predicts there will be a global shortage of 1.8 million cybersecurity professionals by 2022 to fill those critical positions.  With this cybersecurity talent shortage, educators are uniquely positioned to help students develop the technical skills to pursue careers in this industry.
