NCSC Publishes Diversity in the Cybersecurity report to Improve the Experience and Opportunity in the Industry

July 30, 2020 / Security Magazine

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – a part of GCHQ – and KPMG UK have jointly published the first annual Decrypting Diversity: Diversity and Inclusion in Cyber Security report, which aims to set a benchmark for improving the experiences and opportunities for existing and future staff working in the industry. The report provided a mixed picture, revealing that in some areas minority representation was above average for the country but also highlighting discrimination and a lack of inclusivity across gender, sexual orientation, social mobility and ethnicity. It found that there is more to be done by the industry and in addition to accepting all of the report’s recommendations the NCSC has today committed to publishing specific actions to improve diversity and inclusion within the organisation before the end of the year.
