NCSC Certified Cyber Security Consultancy Service
IT Governance has developed a new Cyber Security Consultancy service aligned with the requirements of the NCSC (formerly CESG)’s new Certified Cyber Security Consultancy (CCSC) scheme, aimed at the public sector and private-sector organisations looking to do business with the public sector.
The new scheme replaces the former CESG Listed Advisor Scheme (CLAS). The former scheme, CLAS, focused on individual consultants rather than consultancy firms. By introducing the CCSC scheme, CESG aimed to reduce the dependence on individual consultants, and to establish the wider credentials of consultancy companies to deliver high-quality, tailored and expert cyber security advice.
Once registered under the new NCSC scheme, consultancy organisations can apply to be listed as an approved supplier to the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
Another benefit of the new scheme is that every certified consultancy will be assured by the NCSC.
According to CESG’s website, Certified Cyber Security Consultancies will have demonstrated to the NCSC that they:
Have a proven track record of delivering defined cyber security consultancy services;
Have a level of cyber security expertise supported by professional requirements defined by the NCSC;
Manage consultancy engagements in accordance with industry good practice;
Meet NCSC requirements for certified professional cyber services companies.
Organisations delivering NCSC-approved cyber security consultancy must appoint a suitably skilled NCSC Certified Professional (CCP).
NCSC Cyber Security Consultancy Service categories
There are initially four Certified Cyber Security Consultancy Service categories, and approved consultancies can offer services within these categories. IT Governance offers consultancy services in each of these categories.
