The Occupational Information Network O*NET did not explore possible uses of O*NET data to inform workforce readiness certification programs. In this study, the O*NET database is used to map out education requirements and how they relate to professional certifications as required by the employers and job designers in accordance with the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS). The search focuses on the “Information Security Analysts” occupation as listed on O*NET, Careeronestop, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), and finally tied back to NICCS source work role to identify certifications requirements. No site has listed any certification as required, desirable or mandatory. NICCS under the NICE Cybersecurity Framework Work Roles offered general guidance to potential topics and areas of certification. Careeronestop site under certification finder provided the ultimate guidance for this role certification. Professional certifications are still not an integral part of the Cybersecurity Workforce Framework official guidance.
Keyword : Occupational Information Network O*NET, NICE Framework, NICCS, Certification & Information Security Analyst.
