"A better organised cyber profession will also make it easier to attract people, retain people and help them drive their career forward. People need a clear understanding of the pathways available to them. The UK Cyber Security Council is critical to achieving this and leading the response to increasing diversity in the workforce. By defining and standardising the professional cyber security landscape, as well as creating clearer information for young people and professionals, the UK Cyber Security Council will embed itself as the voice for the cyber security profession. To guarantee progress, we must make sure the Council is empowered."
