SA Cyber Security Skills Matrix and NICE Workforce Framework
AustCyber's SA Cyber Security Innovation Node completed a survey of local industry partners to create a snapshot of the industry and its needs. The focus was to understand where the gaps are in the workforce and explore what this means in terms of NICE Framework adoption, cyber security education and the country-wide cyber security skills shortage. The snapshot report identified:
- work roles that are considered in demand by industry and what qualifications those employers are expected to hold to enable the education sector to identify key areas for course focus;
- 'difficult to recruit' roles; and
- introduces the SA Cyber Security Skills Dashboard as a resource to enable closer alignment between industry and the education sector, as well as providing students and professionals a visual tool for career choice and progression.
