Nations across the world are allocating more resources to protect themselves from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. In the UK alone, the government recently announced an injection of £650 million ($1.03 billion) into boosting the nation’s cyber defence systems. Faced with a crippling shortage of ‘Cyber Warriors’, investment into training for cyber security is increasing as both public and private sectors scramble to defend their critical networks and operations. ITEC is a well-established event in the military training and simulation community already. It is recognised as the leading European event for this market, and it has been running successfully for over 20 years. In the past it has focussed on training and simulation for the traditional domains of land, sea and air, so it is ideally placed to host an initiative focussed on cyber security training.Through the creation of a dedicated workshop and a cyber training zone on the exhibition floor, ITEC 2012 will bring together thought-leaders from government, military, academia and industry for the first time to share knowledge and expertise on how to address the critical lack of relevant skills and education for Cyber Security now and in the future. GCSEC will participate to ITEC 2012 with a speech about the Master in Cyber Security offered in partnership with Royal Holloway of London.
