Infosec’s 2021 Cybersecurity Role & Career Path Clarity Study surveyed over 370 cybersecurity leaders in the U.S. and Canada about resources used to structure cybersecurity job descriptions and development plans. It revealed while resources used varied widely across all organization sizes and industries, adoption of tools like the NICE Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity (NICE Framework) had the largest influence on organizations’ abilities to fill open cybersecurity roles. Overall the study found:

  • 81% of organizations reported they were at least considering aligning cybersecurity job descriptions to the NICE Framework
  • That same cohort was 676% more likely to report very to extremely well-defined cybersecurity job roles and responsibilities
  • And 57% more likely to report satisfaction with their ability to fill open cybersecurity roles than respondents at organizations with no intent to map job descriptions to NICE
