In September 2022, ENISA introduced the European Cybersecurity Skills Framework, a tool which summarises cybersecurity-related roles into 12 profiles, analysed into their corresponding responsibilities, skills and knowledge.

At the same time, the European Commission declared 2023 as the European Year of Skills and announced the establishment of the Cybersecurity Skills Academy.

Numerous renounced institutions, with long experience in the field, are also thrown in the battle of reskilling and upskilling professionals, in order to help increase the cybersecurity workforce, and are introducing schemes that assess cybersecurity competences, especially for organisations in critical sectors.

 However, some questions still remain:

  • Will the assessment of skills actually help employability and professionalization?
  • Do professional certifications and accreditation by training institutions help to ensure a high common level of cybersecurity?
  • Will mutual recognition of professional certificates enhance professional development and still ensure high quality standards?
  • Which will be role of the Member States’ public bodies in the coordination of this landscape?

In an attempt to address these questions, this webinar will tackle approaches to the certification of cybersecurity skills and how they can be aligned with the ECSF.

This is the first of a series of webinars ENISA will organise on the topic of cybersecurity skills with the aim to bring in the light all obscure points of the cybersecurity career path. Follow ENISA social media for the next episodes of the series.
