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).

• Description and application of cybersecurity skills frameworks
