Growing cyber security expertise

In February 2021, the Scottish Government launched a refreshed Cyber Resilience Learning and Skills Action Plan as part of Scotland’s Strategic Framework (see Annex C).

This Action Plan has four overarching aims, which are to:

1. increase people’s cyber resilience through awareness raising and engagement

2. explicitly embed cyber resilience throughout our education and lifelong learning system

3. increase people’s cyber resilience at work

4. support the development of accessible cyber security skills training pathways and effective careers guidance to help ensure that skills supply meets demand.
