Developed in 1990, the National Registry of CPE Sponsors is a program offered by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) to recognize CPE program sponsors who provide continuing professional education (CPE) programs in accordance with nationally recognized standards. Many State Boards of Accountancy require CPAs to earn required CPE credits through companies approved on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. The names of approved CPE program sponsors are published here on NASBAregistry.org in the Search for Sponsors section. State Boards of Accountancy and their licensees can refer to this listing to identify and select approved learning providers.
NICCS has developed an Education and Training Catalog with courses mapped to the interactive National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NICE Framework). The NICE Framework provides a common lexicon to describe cybersecurity work, and workers, regardless of where, or for whom, the work is performed. All McAfee Institute offerings are aligned with the NICE Framework – the categories are based on extensive job analyses that groups together work and workers that share common major functions, regardless of job titles or other occupational terms.
- The NICE Framework supports the nation’s cybersecurity workforce development efforts.
- The NICE Framework provides a simple, standardized way to define cybersecurity work across multiple sectors
- The NICE Framework provides detailed descriptions of types of cybersecurity work, the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for each area, and descriptions of common specialties
- Students will graduate with the knowledge and skills that employers need
- Colleges can create programs that are aligned with jobs
- Employees will have a better-defined career path and opportunities
- Policymakers can set standards to promote workforce professionalization
