Cybersecurity skills - Building a cybersecurity workforce
The cybersecurity workforce shortage and skills gap are a major concern for both economic development and national security, especially in the rapid digitization of the global economy. While various initiatives related to cybersecurity skills have been proposed and multiple actions have been launched to address the problems, cybersecurity skills gaps persist. In an effort to address the problem, ENISA identified Europe’s need for a comprehensive approach that define a set of roles and skills relevant to the cybersecurity field and worked on the development of the European Cybersecurity Skills Framework (ECSF), thus making an essential next step towards Europe’s digital future. On the occasion of the official presentation of the ECSF ENISA is hosting a conference on “Cybersecurity Skills - Building a Cybersecurity Workforce”, where national, European and international stakeholders will come together to share best practices in building a cybersecurity workforce.
