We're frequently asked, "How do I get into cyber?".
While cyber security covers a broad range of specialisms, skills, and knowledge, we want to make it easier to understand how you start a cyber career, which pathway to take, and what skills will help you get there.
We also want to make clear the routes to progress into different specialisms.
So we have developed our career mapping tool.
This tool enables those new to or already within cyber security to match their knowledge or interest to the key knowledge areas covered by the Cyber Body of Knowledge to our 16 specialisms.
Work through the knowledge areas and select how comfortable you feel with each area, and the tool will tell you your top specialism matches: https://www.ukcybersecuritycouncil.org.uk/careers-and-learning/career-mapping/
