NICE Webinar – Addressing the Cybersecurity Talent Gap at Scale – Introducing Learning and Employment Records

October 21  8:00 am - 9:00 am
Sponsored by National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE)

National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) – We are living in a skills-based economy where employers are seeking ways for learners (employees, job seekers, and students) to provide evidence of their skills or competencies.  A national, Learning and Employer Record (LER) infrastructure will support learners by enabling them and education and training providers to match their skills or competencies and attainment to career positions they are pursuing.  At the same time, this allows employers to better articulate the skills or competencies they require to search for, develop, recruit, and manage talent.  The National Student Clearinghouse, IBM, Western Governor’s University, and iQ4 have joined together to establish a pilot program to provide a test bed for a Cybersecurity Learning and Employment Record.  This webinar will introduce the emergence of LER’s and describe the cybersecurity pilot project.
