DHS NICCS Publishes Cybersecurity Training and Education Catalog ICR

The DHS Cybersecurity Education Office (CEO) published a 30-day information collection request (ICR) notice in today’s Federal Register (78 FR 57643-56744) supporting the data collection efforts of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies (NICCS) for the Cybersecurity Education and Training Catalog (CETC).

The CETC is a national level resource for the listing of cybersecurity training and certification programs. Given the DHS responsibility for cybersecurity operations within the Federal Government it appears that the CETC is currently focused on training programs by and/or for federal government agencies, but the ICR certainly allows for registration of private sector training providers. The ICR covers the registration of cybersecurity training and certification programs and their provision of standardized information about their programs.

The burden forecast for this ICR indicates that the CEO only expects about 300 cybersecurity training and certification respondents to register with the system. They expect the average respondent will interface with the program seven times at about an hour a response.

Public comments on this ICR notice may be provided to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) via email ( Comments should be filed by October 21st, 2013.
