The Council is emerged by the BFM Bayreuth e.V. and its project “TeBeISi”. The Council is supported by the European Union in its ERASMUS+ Program.
Firms cross the EU are facing increasing risks regarding their Information Security. Outflow and loss of information or breaches in the security of the firm’s ICT architecture pose vital threats to businesses which take advantage of new digital technologies in order to improve their business model. However, complex technical and legal environments pose high demands onto Information Security experts, resulting in persistent scarcity of qualified personnel and mark-up salaries which SME’s are unable to provide.
The TeBeISi-project (“Partial Certification in the professional field of Information Security”) aims at making more personnel available by making use of a partial certification approach, which allows both lateral entrants and new employees to self-assess their competences in regards to an occupational profile, which is developed to specifically fulfill the needs of SMEs. With the help of an occupational profile, it can be determined which competences a firm is looking for and which capabilities a learner can already provide. The missing competences can then be trained, providing the firm with a resource-efficient and cost-effective possibility of building up own technical capacities.
The curriculum will be made available to social partners, VET-providers and educational institutions, allowing for the developments of courses which are orientated on the local demand, meanwhile providing transparency by following these standardised content, making learning transparent and mobile across sectors and borders.
The focus of the underlying Project will help to promote the recognition and certification of qualifications and competences, including those acquired through non-formal and informal learning. Through the European exchange between the institutions, the certifications of occupational profiles that are specifically prevalent in the countries are to be processed and incorporated into newly developed occupational profiles in the exchange of experience. The aim of the project is to transfer these profiles, including the certification process, to the European partner countries and to successfully implement them in practice. The focus is on the validation of learning outcomes from non-formal and informal learning.
