Join the first REWIRE project event on Cybersecurity Skills Gap & Education

The REWIRE partnership is pleased to invite you its first online event that will be held on 19 September from 4 to 5.30 pm CET.

The REWIRE Cybersecurity Skills Alliance – A New Vision for Europe – project brings together 25 partners from academia and VET, cybersecurity industry, non-cyber industries, certification partners and umbrella organizations. Its work builds upon four pilot projects: CONCORDIA, SPARTA, ECHO, CyberSec4Europe implemented with the support of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. REWIRE will develop a Blueprint for the Cybersecurity industry and a concrete European Cybersecurity Skills Strategy.

The cybersecurity skills gap and shortage are a reality in Europe and need to be tackled. The first REWIRE Policy Brief aimed at pointing out a series of aspects: the context and relevance of having a uniform European Cybersecurity Skills Framework; the description and presentation of the skills frameworks in other countries; and remark the importance of addressing cybersecurity education at all levels, as it embodies a considerable challenge not only for actors such as governments or companies, but also for citizens.

In addition, the first of the REWIRE Fiche has been carried out after reviewing the cybersecurity strategies of multiple European countries, from which different initiatives and actions have been identified and collected. Pending a more comprehensive analysis in the lifetime of the REWIRE project, the REWIRE Fiche I highlights two aspects above all others: the categories created to group the initiatives selected, and the example of one of the initiatives that could later be classified as a concrete good practice.

Join us for an online presentation and discussion of the first REWIRE Fiche and Policy Brief. We are looking forward to connecting with you during this first event of REWIRE!
