      While I needed some technical knowledge in the area, I had to learn most of the specialised tasks so I would say, some technical knowledge and then a lot of transferable skills (ability to learn quick, problem solve, knack for software, etc.).

      There are so many routes into Cyber now, obviously Computer Science will give you a solid background at school, but in colleges there’s Computer Science at A’ Level and also the new Digital T-Levels if you want both education and hands on experience as not only will you learn this at college, you will also get to work with an employer and test the skills you have learned. From there, university or an apprenticeship is a good way to go if you want a degree or you could apply to an organisation with a good background in junior talent, we look more at the individual as we can give you the skills you need, so if you are enthusiastic and show a willingness to learn, then this will serve you well.
