Don't expect to stay relevant in public service esp if you are looking to stay long term although the experience can be useful for cv building.

Just moi 2 cents..
example of those agencies ?

If you cannot take it and want to specialize in niche technical career paths, then go find a proper IT MNC or if cannot go for the small specialized tech startups.

technical cybersecurity in public sectors

hi,

any professionals currently dealing with technical aspects of cybersecurity in public sectors? I understand that public sectors are usually not so hands-on and more of vendor management.

Any one can share which agencies (civil service) that are more technical? Fresh graduate here keen to join civil service but concern of skill transfer-ability
