About The Cyber Scheme

The Cyber Scheme is one of only two organisations accredited by GCHQ/NCSC to offer examinations that meet UK Government Standards in Penetration Testing. The NCSC, as the National Authority for Cyber Security ensures that the Cyber Scheme is operating at the highest standards in the delivery of our training and examinations. Certifications issued by the Cyber Scheme are therefore recognised by NCSC as meeting the necessary standards to apply for membership of the NCSC CHECK scheme.

Quality of service delivery is subject to regular audit and is monitored on an on-going basis by the NCSC. This ensures that course content reflects the current cyber security trends and threats and that the examination processes are robust and as near real world as is possible in an examination environment.

For the Cyber Scheme Team Leader (CSTL) certification we have developed a testing environment that provides near real world challenges for candidates through randomly generated scenarios, meaning no two candidates will ever sit the same test. Successful candidates and future employers can therefore be assured that the certification has fully tested the candidate’s knowledge, experience and creative thinking within the world of penetration testing.

In order to ensure that the governance, vision and day-to-day management of the scheme are maintained at the highest quality, the Cyber Scheme has also appointed a diverse range of professionals as the executive membership committee.

Presently, the board has representation from the UK Cyber Challenge and IRM LTD.

Please get in touch if you would like to help shape the future of the cyber industry through our training and accreditation.
