New British Cyber Security Council

The British government has set up a new independent body to boost career opportunities and professional standards for the growing cyber security sector. Funded by the Dept. of Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) the new organisation will bring the cyber security professionals in line with others, like law, medicine and engineering.

The concept is a single source of information for people looking to enter or further their career and the Council will actively pursue opportunities to attract more talent and increase diversity in the cyber security workforce.

The Council will aim to boost skilled job prospects around the country by giving budding and existing workers a clear roadmap for building a career in cyber security and focus on increasing the number and diversity of people entering the profession.
The body will work with training providers to accredit courses and qualifications, and give employers the information and confidence they need to recruit effectively to ensure their cyber capability.

The Council is part of the UK government’s five year £1.9 billion National Cyber Security Strategy to make the UK the safest place to live and work online.

“The fact we are launching an independent professional body for cyber security shows just how vital this area has become, it makes a huge contribution to our thriving digital economy by safeguarding our critical national infrastructure, commerce and other online spaces....The UK Cyber Security Council will ensure anyone interested in an exciting career tackling online threats has access to world-class training and guidance. It will also champion diversity and inclusion, driving up standards while helping the nation to build back better and safer.” said the responsible DCMS Mister, Matt Warman. 

A spokesman for the National Cyber Security Centre ( NCSC) confirmed that cyber security is a growing industry in the UK and ".. Is vital for high standards of practice and technical expertise to be at the heart of the profession as it develops."

The NCSC will work with the new  Council to help ensure that the next generation of cyber security professionals have the skills and support they need to thrive and make the UK the safest place to live and work online.
