National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education Conference and Expo Virtual Conference Series

Are you ready for National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week?

National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week, brought to you by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), is a week-long campaign to call attention to the contributions to society and innovations introduced by cybersecurity practitioners.

The conference series is designed to build awareness about the wide range of cybersecurity job opportunities, how cybersecurity plays a vital role in the lives of Americans, and how building a national cybersecurity workforce enhances America’s national security and promotes economic prosperity, according to a conference release.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is asking members of the NICE community to spread the word by using the hashtags #cybercareerweek or why you love #mycyberjob. By doing so you’ll be joining a national movement to elevate and expand the conversation around the positive impact in building the cybersecurity workforce in America.

A few of the special events have been developed with NICE just for National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week to help advocate for pursuing a career in cybersecurity. All events are free and open to the public; however, registration may be required, NIST said.

We increasingly rely on our mobile devices, trusting them with confidential information and handing over our data to companies and their websites. Do you know how to keep your personal information safe online? How safe have you been?

The conference series topics are designed to inform, educate and elevate the important topic of cybersecurity and how cybersecurity professionals secure American interests in cyberspace.
