What We Do:
The CERT Cyber Workforce Development (CWD) team aims to lower the cost and time required to build cybersecurity expertise and to amplify that expertise to a globally distributed workforce. To achieve this, we develop and integrate innovative tools and processes to train, exercise, and assess cybersecurity professionals and teams. In doing so, CWD pioneers research and development efforts designed to counter cybersecurity threats to our nation.
CWD develops solutions for improving an organization’s cyber workforce development program. CWD partners with sponsors to identify and resolve gaps that hinder a workforce’s ability to counter rapidly evolving adversary tactics in cyberspace. We achieve this by guiding organizations through improvement of their cyber workforce’s knowledge, skills, and abilities.
CWD’s core strength is our supportive and highly collaborative culture. Our team recognizes the importance of our mission: to ensure that our nation’s cybersecurity workforce is the best in the world. We are looking for people of character who share our passion, love technology and teamwork, and who have a desire to teach, learn from, and collaborate with others. We provide numerous internal and external training and professional development opportunities for members of our team. We also learn from each other through cross-training and mentoring.
