Cyber Security Skills Research

The Government is carrying out research into the cyber security skills needs of the UK.


Data Build Research & Solutions


The Digital Economy Unit within the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has commissioned Databuild Research and Solutions Ltd. to undertake a programme of research to understand how organisations across the UK protect their digital assets, networks and data from damage, attack and unauthorised access. This is an opportunity to inform the Government’s evidence base and subsequent policy development that will ensure organisations can secure the skills they need to protect their digital assets, networks and data.

A key part of this work involves collecting data via telephone interviews from a sample of public and private sector organisations. Databuild are currently contacting organisations by telephone in relation to this work. The data and insight provided to Databuild will be shared with DCMS; however all responses will remain confidential and under no circumstances would the data for individual organisations or other sensitive data be shared publicly.

Databuild is a member of the Market Research Society and complies with their Code of Conduct.
