The current lack of cybersecurity experts on the world job market is a significant problem that can be solved only by coordinated and focused development of higher education and professional training programs. All topics related to cybersecurity education, training and awareness will be considered for the Workshop on Education, Training and Awareness in Cybersecurity (ETACS).

Furthermore, the EU-wide agreement on the identification of skills necessary for cybersecurity work roles is one of the main interests of the workshop. The event aims at putting together people form universities, professional training institutions, industry, government and EU agencies to discuss current problems and solutions for cybersecurity education and training.

• Description and application of cybersecurity skills frameworks
