Partners are developing recommendations for higher education institutions – how and what to teach nowadays to security specialists. Document will be developed by experts from 6 partner countries.

First step for developing the recommendations was to organize discussion with experts from all 6 countries. In autumn 2022 ERASMUS+ SECUREU project partners organised 6 round table discussions in Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Spain, the Netherlands and Norway. We gathered security and risk management specialists to ask their opinion about questions like what we should teach to young security specialists, what skills are missing, what the future perspectives and perceived risks are for the security field. 

It seems that all countries have to cope with the same problems and though of the experts about skills of security specialist and future of security field as such are very similar.

Experts from all countries highlighted several similarities and skills’ groups which are important for young security specialists and should be improved – soft skills, strategic thinking and strategic management, better management skills in general, leadership skills. Very important is to develop abilities to manage information security, cyber-security, technological and digital literacy.

Future also for security field is information technologies, artificial intelligence and business analytics, cross-sectoral skills, building a link between business and security, cyber security, data security, technology literacy.
