Cybersecurity Workforce: Agencies Need to Improve Baseline Assessments and Procedures for Coding Positions
[Technical Report, Congressional Report]
GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
As required by the Federal Cybersecurity Workforce Assessment Act of 2015 act, the Office of Personnel Management OPM developed a cybersecurity coding structure under the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education NICE as well as procedures for assigning codes to federal civilian cybersecurity positions. However, OPM issued the coding structure and procedures 5 and 4 months later than the acts deadlines because OPM was working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST to align the structure and procedures with the draft NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework, which NIST issued later than planned. OPM also submitted a progress report to Congress on the implementation of the act 1 month after it was due. The delays in issuing the coding structure and procedures have extended the expected time frames for implementing subsequent provisions of the act.
