Cyber security

UK Cyber Security Council granted charitable status

The UK Cyber Security Council has had its charitable status confirmed as it seeks to bolster the UK cyber security community.

The UK Cyber Security Council – the self-regulatory body for the cyber security education and skills sector – has had its application for charitable status has been approved by the Charity Commission. It has been added to the register of charities accordingly.

The Council was confirmed as an independent body in April this year, aiming to deliver thought leadership, career tools and education to the sector and those seeking a career in cyber security.

The confirmation of the Council as a charitable body is said to be in recognition of the inclusive and non-profit support role the Council will play in supporting the development of education, training and skills within the UK cyber security community. Through its founding principles and key pillars of operation, the Council will serve as a trusted and expert body working to support policy makers, training and education bodies, membership associations, employers and cyber security practitioners.

“We’re very pleased to say that the Council has been granted charitable status. Being a charity doesn’t particularly change how the Council will operate, but it’s both a reminder and proof to everyone that the mission of the Council is exclusively to benefit the public, in particular by making the UK one of the safest places in the world to live and work online,” said Don MacIntyre, interim CEO of the UK Cyber Security Council.

In accordance with UK’s charity legislation, the UK Cyber Security Council is controlled, and its assets held in trust, by a board of trustees, which is responsible for ensuring that the Council is well-run and delivers its charitable activities for the public benefit.

The Council’s registration information can be found on the Charity Commission website.
