Supplemental Information

To help close the cybersecurity skills gap, CyberSeek provides detailed, actionable data about supply and demand in the cybersecurity job market.

Every year in the U.S. there are 128,000 openings for Information Security Analysts, but only 88,000 workers currently employed in those positions – a talent shortfall of 40,000 workers for cybersecurity’s largest job.  Click on buttons below to view this new and exciting new tool.

In 2013 the National Minority Technology Council participated in the National Science Foundation sponsored MPICT Winter 2013 ICT Educator Conference.  The Conference hosted the Department of Homeland Security and their education leadership informing the newly formed National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education(NICE).  NMTC is currently a member of the NICE Working Group.

NMTC helped design a lab from harvested ANTC resources.

ANTC Tech Lab

Intentional innovation considers the resources that are available.  The National Minority Technology Council quickly re-configured the old "Data Center" room in the back of the Tech Center.  After harvesting unused chairs, tables, computers, and white boards a new computer lab was developed for the 2016 ICT Summer Explore STEM Inspire Institute.
