Cybersecurity Workforce Developers Need You !!!

The following is an un-paid public service announcement from one of my favorite organizations (note: while this is intended for US-based cybersecurity professionals,  there's a lot to learn, and a lot of similar tasks that need to be accomplished, if you live and/or do your work in other regions):
Power industry security stakeholders!
The National Board of Information Security Examiners (NBISE) is partnering with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to contribute to the development of the U.S. cybersecurity workforce. Toward this effort, a utility SME panel has mapped power system cybersecurity job responsibilities to the objectives of two workforce frameworks (NICE and ES-C2M2), the domains of training/education programs, and the objectives of key certifications.
NBISE is excited to announce the opening of the Review and Comment System that allows power industry security stakeholders to comment on the results of these job responsibility mappings by the SME panel and we want your feedback on these results. This review system will be open for three weeks of public comment (planned closing on 15 March 2013).

To participate click here or paste/type into your browser.
  • The review will require approximately 15 minutes

  • You may participate in this survey using any web browser and will require no special software
As well, please forward this opportunity to anyone you think can provide valuable feedback and insights to this effort.
If you have any questions or feedback, please contact Tom Vanderhorst at NBISE via email at The results of our first phase of work (cybersecurity operations competency models) can be found at
Thank you, Michael Assante
President & CEO
National Board of Information Security Examiners (NBISE)
