National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education Director Rodney Petersen discusses the importance of educating employees on cybersecurity practices, and why organizations should go beyond basics of internet safety. The branch of the National Institute of Standards and Technology works to ensure organizations make cybersecurity training an important part of risk-management strategies “especially those risks associated with human error, insider threats, and other vulnerabilities with a human element.” Petersen also notes the importance of cybersecurity vocations. “Not only do we need to increase the awareness and skills of the present workforce, but we also need to build an ever-expanding pipeline of talent to fill growing numbers of critical cybersecurity jobs. NICE is addressing this need by accelerating learning and skills development, nurturing a diverse learning community, and guiding career development and workforce planning,” writes Petersen.
