The training or retraining of people who can adequately and efficiently address the safety aspects of this development, both technically and socio-scientifically and in the humanities, lags far behind, both in numbers (quantitative) and in knowledge levels (qualitative). The resulting gap in the labour market between the demand for and the supply of cyber security expertise is the direct reason for the publication of the National Cyber Security Education Agenda (NCSEA).
The NCSEA can be regarded as fulfilling the agenda-setting task of dcypher regarding cyber security higher education. Unlike the agenda for cyber security research (dcypher published the third edition of the NCSRA in 2018), the agenda for higher education in cybersecurity has no tradition to build on. In recent years, numerous discussions have been held, initiatives have been taken and ongoing and related initiatives related to the teaching task have been brought together.
The core of the NCSEA is thus formed by a list of interventions in cyber security (higher) education. The interventions provide an overview of what is currently happening in various 'triple helix' collaborations and what education, private and public parties can do in the coming years to achieve temporary and ultimately structural improvements. To promote coherence and cooperation and to avoid fragmentation, it is recommended that the interventions be carried out under central independent direction.
The main part of NCSEA will be translated in the coming month.
