National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) 2018 Conference and Expo

November 6-7, 2018

Hyatt Regency Miami,

Miami, Florida

The global cybersecurity market is expected to reach $170 billion by 20201 with as many as 3.5 million unfilled positions. To help meet that demand, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE). In 2017 Florida International University (FIU), one of the top research institutions in the United States2, formed a partnership with New America, a Washington D.C.-based think tank, to address cybersecurity capacity building through research, outreach and events for the cybersecurity community. Beginning in 2018, NIST is partnering with FIU and New America to produce the annual NICE Conference − the biggest cybersecurity workforce development event in the U.S. The NICE conference brings together employers of cybersecurity workers with representatives from education, training, certification, and workforce development communities. The 2018 NICE Conference theme, “Innovations in Cybersecurity Education, Training, and Workforce Development” will showcase new creative, innovative, and effective approaches from industry, government, and academia to prepare, grow, and sustain a national cybersecurity workforce that safeguards and promotes America’s national security and economic prosperity. The conference will feature four tracks: 1) Growing the Cybersecurity Workforce, 2) Expanding the Workforce through Diversity and Inclusion, 3) Interdisciplinary and Cross-Domain Education and Training, and 4) Talent Management and Workforce Development. We invite you to partner with us and get your message out to an expected 700-1000 cybersecurity professionals.
