Cybersecurity competence building trends

01 April 2016

Event description

Diplo’s study ‘Cybersecurity Competence Building Trends‘,  commissioned by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, sets out the various measures that ten OECD countries applied to promote competence-building measures in the field of cybersecurity. Examples of confidence-building measures include the development of cybersecurity curricula at universities, the creation of hubs and innovation centres at universities in co-operation with the private and public sector, the evolution of professional education programmes, and the use of knowledge frameworks. The study was presented in April 2016, during the two-day Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge hosted by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy and the Atlantic Council.
