The Cybersecurity Skills Initiative (CSI) is a direct response to the most consistent need of companies across all sectors and of all sizes – how to adequately protect their business in the face of the escalating cyber threat. Central to this need is the growing shortage of skilled cybersecurity personnel to protect against and respond to security breaches. And this is happening at a time when unemployment is rapidly decreasing and the competition for the available technically skilled personnel is intense.
The CSI contains a comprehensive plan to train 5,000 people in cybersecurity skills and help 4,000 companies to tackle the cybersecurity skills issue over the next three years. Below is a list of upcoming training programmes.
