The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has unveiled a new consultation aimed at implementing the National Cyber Security Strategy as a means of developing the cyber security profession in the UK. The ever-growing threat of cyber crime has focussed the Government’s attention of the woeful unpreparedness of the UK cyber security sector and therein the availability of cyber security talent in the UK.

The consultation’s objectives are clear:

“Developing the cyber security profession, including through achieving Royal Chartered status by 2020, reinforcing the recognised body of cyber security excellence within the industry and providing a focal point which can advise, shape and inform national policy.”
