The U.K. Cyber Security Council is a new self-regulatory body for the profession. It is tasked by the U.K. government to execute its vision for the U.K. to be one of the safest places to work and do business online, says the chair of the council’s board of trustees, Dr. Claudia Natanson.
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.”
