Why Cyber-security and Employment Skills?
The Cyber-security skills and autism employment gap
More than half of all UK businesses and charities have a basic cyber-security skills gap. The National Autistic Society's research shows that autistic people are under-employed and many of them are in jobs below their skills level, while a growing number of employers are recognising autistic people's potential to succeed in cyber careers with the right support.
