NICE Framework and CAE Knowledge Units (KUs)

Free downloadable spreadsheets mapping the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) of each Work Role in the NICE Framework to the corresponding CAE Knowledge Units (KUs).

Below are the seven NICE Framework Categories and their related Work Roles. Colleges and universities expanding their cybersecurity programs should consider both the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) that students will need to fulfill Work Roles that are in high demand in their geographic area, and the Knowledge Units (KUs) the Program of Study will need to cover in order to be designated a Center of Academic Excellence (CAE).

Each of the downloadable NICE Work Role spreadsheets map the KSAs of a Work Role to the corresponding CAE Knowledge Units (KUs).
