September – November 2014
In the August 2014 edition of IEEE’s Computer, Dr. McDuffie from NIST and Dr. Piotrowski from NSF authored an article entitled, “The Future of Cybersecurity Education.” The closing sentence of the article states that, “… cybersecurity is the underlying enabler of the STEM disciplines … upon which depends the future economic growth of the entire world.”
Dr. Ernest McDuffie, Lead, National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education, NIST
In early 2010 the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was selected as the lead agency for the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) and identified Dr. McDuffie to be the Lead for this effort. In his previous position he had been appointed the Associate Director of the National Coordination Office (NCO) for Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) in February 2008. From early September 2009 until early November 2009 he served as Acting Director of the NCO.
Prior to joining the NCO, Dr. McDuffie served as the Deputy Director of the Office of Naval Research (ONR) – Science and Technology for America’s Readiness (N-STAR) Initiative. He served as the Lead Program Director for the Federal Cyber Service: Scholarship for Service (SFS) Program at the National Science Foundation (NSF).
