The UK Cyber Security Council continues to work in partnership with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and others to develop with a broad representation of organisations and has been tasked to support the Government’s National Cyber Security Skills Strategy by providing recognition across the practicing community, while enhancing standards and thought leadership for the future.
