Following the announcement of the new T-level technical qualifications, ahead of Wednesday’s budget, Peter Carlisle, VP EMEA at Thales e-Security commented below.
Peter Carlisle, VP EMEA at Thales e-Security:
“With UK businesses being bombarded with increasingly sophisticated cyber assaults, it’s encouraging to see the creation of custom-made, technical qualifications to increase the nation’s digital skillset. Understanding the importance of securely managing data is now the responsibility of every employee at all levels of the organisation and the sooner we start equipping the next generation with specialist skills the better. That’s why it’s vital that the security industry plays its part in supporting organisations like the National Cyber Security Centre to spread best practice and enable companies to fight off malicious hackers who may wish to put national security at risk.”
