The article presents information related to information technological (IT) industries. Growing pressure on businesses to protect themselves against cybercrime has prompted security consultancy Commissum to set up a training course with e-learning firm Absolutely Training. The course is designed for companies aiming to educate their employees about the dangers of electronic crime and consists of an overview, a guide to threats, and best practice. IT courses are proving popular with workers at a Milton Keynes shopping centre, where a training centre was set up last November. The centre— skillscentre: mk— was set up to help employees develop their careers in retail, and many have chosen to take IT courses. Scenta, an offshoot of the Engineering and Technology Board, and CareerSpace, a consortium of nine IT companies, are working together on a careers website for the European IT industry. The site content will include the different types of IT job, the skills that are needed, and interviews with IT professionals.
