The government consultation into embedding cyber pathways and standards closed yesterday, thank you to everyone who responded to it and who attended our roadshow events in the last few weeks.

Simon Hepburn, CEO of the UK Cyber Security Council, said: “At such a pivotal time for the cyber security sector, we hope everyone took the opportunity to have their voice heard by participating in the government’s consultation.

“Strengthening the UK’s cyber resilience includes promoting opportunities for people with a range of backgrounds and skill sets. A key pillar of the Council’s work will be to increase access to, and diversity across, cyber security roles. Delivering a more diverse workforce will be key to plug the skills gap in this increasingly critical industry.

“We look forward to receiving the consultation’s findings and to understanding how the Council can best lead and support the profession on its journey to aligned standards and defined career pathways.”
