As some of you may already know, NIST (the US National Institute of Standards and Technology) recently published a draft version on its strategy for promoting cyber security awareness and education. This is a draft version and can be a bit hard to read, but it has three core goals. From page 2 of the document, the three stated goals are.
- Raise awareness among the American public about the risks of online activities.
- Broaden the pool of skilled workers capable of supporting a cyber-secure nation.
- Develop and maintain an unrivaled, globally competitive cybersecurity workforce.
