Techopedia explains National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE)

With technology's rapid and continuous growth and enhancement, especially via the Internet, cybercrime has evolved into a threat to public safety, economic development and national security. In the 2011 strategic plan titled "Building a Digital Nation," the NIST incorporated NICE’s objectives and goals to raise awareness about the risks of online activities, as follows:
  • Educate the general public about online risks and their prevention
  • Improve public knowledge about cybersecurity within various organizations, allowing optimal application of resources under dire and threatening circumstances
  • Facilitate public access to various and numerous cybersecurity resources
