The Cyber Scheme is one of only two companies in the UK able to examination individuals applying for CHECK Team Leader and Team Member status. We assess and certify hundreds of testers each year, and our certification meets the stringent technical entry level requirements that support an individual’s application for formal recognition by NCSC as an approved penetration (security) tester.
The Cyber Scheme also offers specialist entry level and practitioner training, advanced mentoring, and bespoke corporate onboarding packages to support our technical candidates, from beginner to expert level.
The Cyber Scheme is also a Delivery Partner for the Cyber Advisor (Cyber Essentials Implementation) Assessments, in partnership with NCSC and IASME.
In 2022 The Cyber Scheme created an innovative sponsorship community of CHECK assured service providers, security testing practitioners and organisations committed to improving standards and increasing professionalism within our industry. We provide an objective, supportive opinion on behalf of our sponsors when creating new schemes and lobbying for change with official bodies including The UK Cyber Security Council, NCSC and CIISec.
The Cyber Scheme are working closely with The UK Cyber Security Council in the development of Professional Registration Titles (the route to Chartership) and will soon be publishing application guidance for anyone wishing to be recognised as holding a Professional Title in the security testing specialism.
