Designed for those who are thinking about using SFIA, the Skills Framework for the Information Age, in their organization. Suitable for technology managers, Human Resource specialists and Learning and Development managers, and all with an interest in Digital Skills Management for their specialist resources with Information and Communications Technology, Digital, Cybersecurity, Systems and Software Development, and any other technology-related disciplines.

Why is SFIA important to you?

  • People, their skills and experience, have become a critical aspect for the operations of companies with a dependency on Information & Communications Technology.

  • Most companies don’t know the current skills of their Digital, Cybersecurity and ICT Workforce, or what they need short, medium or long term

  • Without this, there is significant risk of visible business disruption, cybersecurity breach, digital transformation and project failure, compromised ability to deliver products and services to customers at agreed levels, poor employee engagement, recruitment and retention, ineffective training and development
