Cybersecurity competence framework

What are the cybersecurity skills, competences and knowledge employees need to mitigate cyber threats?

The CYRUS cybersecurity competence framework is a tool to:

  • Support the identification of cybersecurity competences, skills and knowledge required by technical and non-technical roles to identify, manage and mitigate cyber risks and develop a cybersecurity culture.
  • Support the design and development of cybersecurity training courses for all employees.
  • Ensure a common terminology and shared understanding of the cybersecurity competences, skills and knowledge required for technical and non-technical roles.

Who is it for?

Organisations, HR managers and training providers can use the framework to:

  • design or re-design cybersecurity awareness and training courses
  • improve the cybersecurity culture for all employees (not only cybersecurity experts)
