The council aims to champion the cybersecurity profession across the U.K. by delivering thought leadership, career tools and education resources to the sector and those seeking a career in the industry.

A big focus of the council is education and academia. Natanson states that it’s imperative to influence educational curriculums and the thinking behind them “to make sure that we are preparing generations not just now, but in the future, to be relevant and able to take on the battle.”

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Natanson discusses:

  • An overview of the new U.K. Cyber Security Council and its aims;
  • The challenges of building a more diverse and inclusive cybersecurity workforce - and how to overcome them;
  • The capabilities needed immediately and into the future to redress the cyber skills shortage.

Natanson has served as board, steering committee member and program chair for the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams and is a registered European Commission security expert. She is founder of the Corporate Executive Program, a body that unites senior decision-makers from leading companies and public sector organizations across the world to discuss risks that affect business and security-related issues and threats. Her experience and expertise cover diverse industry sectors, FTSE 100, Fortune 500, government and growing organizations.
