It was recently announced that the UK Cyber Security Council will be launching inaugural initiatives concerning its standards and ethics committee and qualifications and careers in the cyber sector.
Indeed, the council aimed to raise its standards among cybersecurity professionals as well as developing a common set of standards that can be adopted through education and training interventions. It is also working on planning CyBOK’s Qualifications Framework onto a public-facing Career Pathways Framework.
This initiative wants to drive the cybersecurity industry in the UK forward. The committees will then be composed of council members who will have an interest in promoting, supporting, and developing the cybersecurity profession.
The council is looking to develop the professional infrastructure of standards and pathways to inspire young people and the current workforce to enter the cybersecurity industry.
