The partners are developing recommendations for higher education institutions – how and what to teach to security specialists nowadays. Documents will be developed by experts from 6 partner countries.
The first step for developing the recommendations was to organize discussions with experts from all 6 countries. In the autumn of 2022 the 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 opinions 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 are trying to cope with similar problems and that the thoughts of the experts about necessary skills of security specialists and of the future of the security field as such are similar as well.
Experts from all the countries highlighted several similarities and skills sets 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. Special attention is required to developing abilities to manage information security, cyber-security, technological and digital literacy.
The future for the security field lies in information technologies, artificial intelligence, business analytics, cross-sectoral skills, building links between business and security, cyber security, data security and technology literacy.
