Cyber Security Skills Strategy event in Belfast

4 February 2019

A chance to refine and help shape the UK's Cyber Security Skills Strategy

The UK government recently published a call for views on its Initial National Cyber Security Skills Strategy. The strategy aims to train and develop the UK's cyber security talent and increase cyber security capability and resilience across all sectors and industries.

A series of engagement events is now planned around the UK to give those involved in cyber security a chance to join the conversation, and help shape a final strategy which the government intends to publish later this year.

The Northern Ireland engagement event will take place on Tuesday 19 February 2019 at the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), Queen's Road, Belfast.

The event will include a presentation on the strategic context and an opportunity for participants to consider the key questions posed as part of the government's call for views exercise.

The event is open to anyone involved in the area of cyber security, including representatives from:

  • businesses identifying as cyber (ie digital, SMEs, critical infrastructure providers)
  • individual experts
  • further and higher education sector
  • academia
  • professional bodies
  • charities
  • young people (18+)
  • career transitioners
  • training providers

The event will also be open to policy officials and key delivery partners.
