San Diego, California – November 3-4, 2015
NICE fosters and promotes an ecosystem of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development that effectively secures cyberspace. The NICE 2015 Conference is a rallying point around cybersecurity education and workforce development providing a face-to-face convening of public-private partners, an opportunity to signal NICE strategic directions and priorities, and a forum to showcase best practices. Cybersecurity has emerged as one of the leading creators of jobs and opportunity for all economic sectors. The demand for cybersecurity positions in both the public and private sector is large and growing, but the talent pool of cybersecurity workers is not yet able to keep up.
