Ensuring a Trained and Certified and Qualified Cybersecurity Workforce

Since oru first class at SANS in Orlando in 1999 SU hands-on training and SUT Certifications have pioneered performance based cybersecurity training with practicals, going way beyond theory based classes, to learn hands-on skills necessary to defend our networks and our national critical infrastructure against foreign and domestic threats. Using the proven “Schneider Method” of stacked (successively more challenging) instructor led hands-on, competency-based cyber curricula of 5 day, 40 hour 1 week classes over 2, 6, or 8 weeks to develop key cyber skills for cyber careers. 20 years of experience has taught SU how to build a certified and qualified workforce, focusing on advanced tactical deep knowledge; instructor and peer validated skills and real world applications needed to prove your team can meet Federal Contract requirements. Br Br The NICE Framework provides a blueprint to categorize, organize, and describe cybersecurity work into Specialty Areas, Categories and new Work Roles. Identifying the needs of a trained, certified and qualified workforce, is further by defining critical tasks, knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs). The Workforce Framework provides a common language to help define professional work requirements in cybersecurity speak on resumes, job role descriptions and career objectivs.

Using the NICE Framework

SU classes and SUT Certifications are mapped to the NICE Cybersecurity Workrole Framework. For ease of use we have formatted both the downloadable .pdf and the Interactive Map utilizing the work role as the basis.

Everything you need to know about that job role, specialty area, and mapped SU Instructor Led Training Course and the affiliated SUT Certifications are located on one page or section; including the SU Course, SUT Certification, and proficiency levels. To maintain organizational integrity, SU and SUT NICE Framework approach includes only courses and certifications that mapp and made sense.

Basic Information About Proficiency Levels

Basic - Training maps to many knowledge statements, simpler skills, and tasks that are pre-requisites to an employee being effective in this job role.

Intermediate - Training maps to many mid-level knowledge, skills, abilities and tasks. Employee can be reasonably effective in this job role after receiving training.

Advanced - Maps to higher level knowledge, skills, abilities, and tasks. Employee should be very effective in this functional area after receiving training. However, some lower level, pre-requisite KSAs may not be covered by these courses.

Expert - Maps to few very specific KSAs or tasks in a highly focused area. This training assumes someone is already well trained and effective in this job role overall. It focuses on expertise in a very specific, narrow area.
