Cyber Skills Academy - Stakeholder Involvement

Stakeholder Involvement: committing to close the cybersecurity skills gap

Under this area of activity the Cyber Skills Academy will address two main aspects: 

  • Pledges from stakeholders to close the cyber skills gap in Europe. 
  • Strategies from Member States and public authorities in general to improve cyber skills.

Pledges on Cyber Skills

There are already several pledges on cybersecurity in the Pledges section of the Digital Skills & Jobs Platform. Find out who the pledgers are below and dive into the Cybersecurity Skills Academy pledges here. Will your organisation be our next pledger?

Pledgers' Guide and conditions to join the Academy

Before submitting a pledge, it is important to know that specific pledges to the Cybersecurity skills Academy must meet three conditions to be considered under the Academy:

  • Comply with the general requirements for pledges of the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform.
  • Explain the planned or achieved impact of the pledge regarding one or more of the six objectives in line with the Academy's aims, which you will find in the Pledgers' Guide.
  • Update the pledge at least every 6 months, indicating what has been achieved during that time regarding the six objectives above and, if applicable, updating or revising the pledge. Moreover, Member States are encouraged to integrate cybersecurity skills in their national strategies.

Member States and EU Strategies

Member States, regional and local authorities, as well as international and European public entities, are encouraged to adopt dedicated strategies or initiatives on cyber skills, or to integrate cyber skills in relevant strategies or initiatives with a broader scope (e.g. cybersecurity, digital skills, employment, etc).
