Cyber security skills in the UK labour market 2021

The Cyber Security Skills in the UK Labour Market 2021 report explores the nature and extent of cyber security skills gaps (people lacking appropriate skills), skills shortages (a lack of people available to work in cyber security job roles) and job vacancies in the UK.

The research uses a mixture of:

  • Representative surveys with cyber sector businesses and the wider population of UK organisations (businesses, charities and public sector organisations – with a focus on businesses)
  • Qualitative research with training providers, cyber firms and large organisations in various sectors
  • A secondary analysis of cyber security job postings using the Burning Glass Technologies database.

You can view the full report here.

A related report exploring the supply of cyber security skills, Understanding the Cyber Security Recruitment Pool, is also available.

Last year’s version of this survey, Cyber Security Skills in the UK Labour Market 2020 from March 2020 is also available.
