Government wants to see the UK cybersecurity profession coming under greater central control, under the guise of driving up standards and introducing a UK-specific infosec certification and qualification framework.
I see no reason for this apart from control freakery.
In the not so very distant past I was a design authority for flight safety critical avionics and there is no certification required for that. I happen to be a chartered engineer but there is no such necessity (I find it opens useful doors at my age so I am willing to pay the annual fees but as a bonus the current $COMPANY actually allows me to expense it).
I also do not have a degree; the circumstances of the times were not suitable for me to do one.
The ID10T problem in UK government (and not just elected members of parliament) is enormous; don't foist it on the professionals just trying to do their jobs.
