Cyber security skills are in increasing demand, with a skills gap that we need to address. We are doing this by embedding cyber security strategically as a key strand of digital skills development. Our skills agency, Skills Development Scotland (SDS), is leading important activity, including:
- promoting cyber security as a career, and providing guidance on how to get into cyber security
- refreshing the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Information Security
- creating a baseline of evidence of what works in developing skills, and promoting and consolidating cyber security within apprenticeship programmes.
