New Cyber Security Technician Apprenticeship Standard
A group of employers and professional bodies have come together to develop a level three apprenticeship standard in cyber security.
Cyber Security skills are critical for our industry and the earlier the better. An industry group of employers, subject experts and professional bodies including BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, and the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) met in November 2018 at Bletchley Park and determined that there was sufficient interest to develop a level three apprenticeship standard in cyber security.
The level three apprenticeship standard in cyber security would provide an entry route into the sector, after GCSEs, for those who would prefer to gain employment through experience rather than academic study - or provide an access route into cyber security for career changers.
The new apprenticeship standard will be focused on developing an occupation around the provision of first line cyber security support. This occupation will be based on the need to develop competent individuals to monitor and detect potential security threats and escalate as necessary and to support secure and uninterrupted business operations of an organisation through the implementation of cyber security mechanisms and the application of cyber security procedures and controls.
Your help is needed to respond to a survey developed by the sponsoring group. The survey , which should take 10-15 minutes to complete is asking for specific feedback to ensure that the Cyber Security Technician standard is appropriate for the widest possible range of employers.
The consultation closes on Friday 19th July 2019 and is available to complete now.
