The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), along with our government, academia, and private industry partners, are proud to introduce the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers & Studies (NICCS™). Launched in January 2013, NICCS serves as the one-stop shop for cybersecurity education and career information.

What is NICCS?
NICCS promotes the various efforts of The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), a nationally-coordinated effort to enable a safer cyberspace for all by enhancing the overall cybersecurity posture of the United States.

What can I find on NICCS?
NICCS houses information on cybersecurity awareness, education, training, careers, recent news & events, and various research topics concerning cybersecurity. It also includes the Cybersecurity Education and Training Catalog and The Cyber Competition Repository. Both interfaces are poised to provide users with information on internship, scholarship, training, and cyber competition information for those interested in cybersecurity careers.

Where can I find NICCS?
The NICCS site can be located at www.niccs.us-cert.gov.

Why should I visit NICCS?
NICCS is a resource that can be utilized by anyone interested in cybersecurity. This ranges from students looking for camps or cyber competitions, a recent college graduate looking for employment in cybersecurity, parents who wish to educate their children on the growing industry, or current professionals who wish to advance their own careers.

Please note that NICCS has recently launched, and we are continually updating and improving the content and functionality of the site to make sure our users have the best experience possible. If you have any suggestions, relevant content, would like to learn more, or find ways to get involved in your community, contact us at NICCS@hq.dhs.gov.
Thank you and welcome to NICCS!
