The UK Cyber Security Council is the self-regulatory body for the UK's cyber security profession. It develops, promotes and stewards nationally recognised standards for cyber security in support of the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy to make the UK the safest place to live and work online.
Values are the things that are important to an individual, or to a company. Clear, defined values show what you stand for, and the type of culture you are looking to create.
However, writing them down is not enough. They need to be lived. Breathed. Here at the UK Cyber Security Council, we do just that. Our values empower us, hold us accountable and drive us forward.
This is our base. Our grounding. A fundamental consideration in everything that we do. We do the right thing, in the right way, to be the trusted voice for the cyber security profession.
We don’t stand still. This profession is constantly evolving, and so are we. We focus on what we can do, using creativity and ingenuity to overcome challenges and drive best practice across the industry. We will be setting the standard for cyber security professionals and in doing so we will need new processes, ideas and solutions for the current landscape.
This means everyone. We embrace diversity of all kinds and the rich knowledge this empowers us with. We break down barriers, promote fairness and champion the need and the benefits for inclusion in all our activities.
We recognise the power in collaboration, within our teams and externally. Connecting and communicating with the widest range of people possible allows us to better represent and reflect the views of this diverse profession and bring forward evidence-led solutions to the challenges they face.
We strive for excellence in everything that we do. We recognise and harness the skills in our team, and in our partners, and know that learning never stops. We will continuously review and evolve to ensure we are staying informed, relevant and impactful.
While it’s true that malicious hackers present an increasing problem for UK businesses, this isn’t the only concern for an organisation’s cyber team. Sometimes, the threats come from somewhere a little closer to home.
