Development Paths

Here in the UK the landscape is described within the UK Information Assurance Community map as having eight groupings: Academic and Research bodies; Trade Associations and Industry groups; Government; Professional Bodies; Government/Industry groups; Regulatory Bodies; Other and International Forums.

Under all of these groups, our sponsors and commercial companies are working together on many initiatives to define easier pathways to get you in to the workplace.

Many of our sponsors have created ‘pathways’ or ‘roadmaps’ of their particular certifications, assessments and training programmes, as well as being NFP [Not-for-profit] with membership bases.  In many cases our sponsors and affiliates span both the international and UK markets, with government and academia looking to them for advice on the national curriculum, getting students certified so that businesses globally and UK wide recognise the skills gained.
