A heat map for hot cybersecurity jobs

A cybersecurity jobs heat map is in the works, thanks to funding from the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education. Visualizing the need for, and supply of, cybersecurity workers across the country, the map will provide data to help employers, job seekers, policy makers, training providers and guidance counselors meet today's increasing demand.

Once developed, the map will be updated every 90 days to show job postings grouped into categories mapped to the NICE National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework, using job titles, skills, educational degrees, certifications, experience and other credentials advertised by employers. The NICE Jobs Heat Map also will provide information on the supply of workers with relevant degrees or certifications.

“This unique tool will allow users on both sides of the employment equation to assess supply and demand in cybersecurity on a city-by-city or state-by-state basis," NICE Director Rodney Petersen said.

The first edition of the jobs heat map is expected to be released in late 2016.
