At-a-glance: the new UK Cyber Security Council

What is the new UK Cyber Security Council and what will it do?

The council is a new independent body which the UK government says will “boost career opportunities and professional standards” in the cyber security sector.

It is intended to be a single voice for the industry in the UK to establish the knowledge, skills and experience needed for different cyber security jobs. The UK government argues this will bring the UK’s cyber security industry into line with other professions such as law, medicine and engineering.

It also has a remit to establish clear routes into careers in cyber security and increase the overall numbers of people and the diversity of people entering the profession.

It will work with training providers to accredit courses and qualifications and provide employers with information to help them recruit.
