Cyber Career Pathways Tool

CISA is excited to announce the release of the Cyber Career Pathways Tool! This tool is designed for individuals looking to start a career in cybersecurity, considering a change within the cyber field, college students, managers, and workforce development specialists interested in the cyber ecosystem.

This tool will help individuals identify, build, and navigate a potential cyber career pathway by increasing understanding of the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to begin, transition, or advance a cyber career.

Image The Cyber Career Pathways Tool presents a new and interactive way to explore work roles within the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework. It depicts the cyber workforce as five distinct, yet complementary, skill communities. It also highlights core attributes among each of the 52 work roles and offers actionable insights for employers, professionals, and individuals considering a career in cyber.

You can find this tool on the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS) website. The Cyber Career Pathways Tool is intended to be used in conjunction with other tools and resources on the NICCS website for current and future cybersecurity professionals. This tool was created and is maintained in partnership with the Interagency Federal Cyber Career Pathways Working Group, led by CISA, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
