The Cyberspace IT/Cybersecurity Workforce (CSWF) Tool will guide you through a series of questions to view how you stack up against the requirements for specific CSWF roles within the Navy, as well as highlight any gaps that exist to become qualified for a role. Additionally, you can view related civilian occupations so you can plan for post-service employment that will use the skills you have honed during your time in service.
The CSWF Tool is based on the qualification matrices found on Navy COOL, which were developed to ensure that Sailors working in Cyber IT and Cybersecurity meet defined qualification requirements to serve in those roles. The DON model is consistent with the DoD Cyber Workforce Framework (DCWF), both based on cybersecurity work roles outlined in the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) framework. The NICE framework is a result of a partnership between government, academic institutions, and the private sector working to develop a common language to describe cybersecurity work no matter where the work is performed
