The importance of cyber security training

The UK Cyber Security Council, a newly formed self-regulatory body for the UK’s cyber security profession, has recently called on industries to commit to spending on cyber security skills development.

Cyber security training is a crucial aspect to preventing cyber crime across all sectors and sizes of organisations.

The guidance from the UK Cyber Security Council comes as a result of the transition back into ‘normality’ following the disruption of Covid-19. With workers returning to regular working practices, this investment is seen as critical to the future success of our national economy.

The latest data from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, supports the call for training in the sector. Indeed, it has revealed that 30% of cyber firms have found it hard to fill generalist roles where they need to have experience across a range of cyber security areas.

The NEBRC offers security awareness training for those with little or no cyber security or technical knowledge. Read more about the training we offer here
