President Trump today issued an executive order directing the creation of various programs to help eliminate the cybersecurity labor shortage, promote cybersecurity work within the government and encourage widespread adoption of the cybersecurity workforce framework created by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE).

The order is designed to create a cybersecurity focused environment in government offices through new educational and promotional efforts.

These efforts will help federal leaders identify those individuals in their departments who show potential as cybersecurity workers and who can be retrained to work in the field. This will be accomplished through aptitude assessments and utilizing the NICE framework to identify, recruit, develop and retain cybersecurity talent.
