At a National Cyber Workforce and Education Summit at the White House, Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh and Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced the 120-Day Cybersecurity Apprentice- ship Sprint, an effort to support numerous industries' use of Registered Apprenticeships to develop and train a skilled and diverse cybersecurity workforce. The 120-Day Cybersecurity Apprenticeship Sprint supports a commitment to expand Registered Appren- ticeships to meet industry's need for talent and to con- nect underserved communities to good jobs. Improv- ing the nation's cybersecurity apparatus is critical to the nation's economic and national security. The partnership between the departments of Labor, Commerce, other federal agencies and the White House Office of the National Cyber Director seeks to recruit employers, industry associations, labor unions, educational provid- ers, community-based organiza- tions and others to establish Reg- istered Apprenticeship programs or to join existing programs to ensure the nation's economic sectors have greater numbers of qualified cybersecurity workers. The sprint will continue until National Apprenticeship Week, Nov. 14-20, 2022. There are currently 714 registered apprentice- ship programs and 42,260 apprentices in cyber- security-related occupations. Since Jan. 20, 2021, 199 new programs have been created – a 28 per- cent increase during the Biden-Harris administration. The 120-Day Cybersecurity Apprenticeship Sprint will build upon this progress and focus on creat- ing new pathways for workers in cybersecurity or a related field through partnerships with K-12, higher education, workforce partners and training programs. Introduc- ing more employers to the poten- tial of cybersecurity Registered Apprenticeships is essential to fill the nearly 700,000 open cyber- security jobs, which span all industries.
