Cyber security skills could lead to securing employment

With the cost for a cyber-security breach increasing all the time for businesses & organisations, the government is looking at new ways to protect them and make the UK more resilient to cyber-attacks & crime.  It is also looking at ways to introduce cyber security skills to a younger generation as early as possible.

The ‘Cyber security skills: business perspectives and government’s next steps’ report includes plans to provide training for teachers to enable them to teach pupils about cyber security.  Support will also be offered to universities that devise innovative proposals to improve cyber security teaching; a new internship scheme will help provide students with the work experience employers are looking for.
