NICCS National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework

The National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework is an online resource that classifies the typical duties and skill requirements of cybersecurity workers. It is meant to define professional requirements in cybersecurity, much as in other professions such as medicine and law. The framework organizes cybersecurity into seven high-level categories, each comprising several specialty areas. Clicking on a specialty area reveals the details about that area. Each specialty area detail displays the standard tasks and the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to successfully complete those tasks.
