Even though you may not have read much about him, Ernest McDuffie is central to the government’s overall bid to improve cybersecurity nationwide. McDuffie leads the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) that’s being coordinated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Obama administration said it started NICE earlier this year to expand from a federal to a national focus the cybersecurity education programs started under the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI). That program began during the George W. Bush administration. A need for improved education is chief among the challenges that experts cite for U.S. computer security efforts.
